A good brand of action escapism is offered in Green Fire. Its story of emerald mining and romantic adventuring in South America is decorated with the names of Stewart Granger, Grace Kelly and Paul Douglas.

The location filming in Colombia ensured fresh scenic backgrounds against which to play the screen story. The script supplies believable dialog and reasonably credible situations, of which Andrew Marton’s good direction, takes full advantage, and the picture spins off at a fast 99 minutes.

The adventure end of the plot is served by the efforts of Granger to find emeralds in an old mountain mine; in the face of halfhearted opposition from his partner, Douglas; the more active interference of Murvyn Vye, a bandit, and the danger of the mining trade itself. Romance is served through the presence of Kelly, whose coffee plantation lies at the foot of the mountain on which Granger is mining, and the attraction that springs up between these two.
