Description by OLDIES.com:
Ace newsreel cameramen Chris Hunter (Clark Gable) and Bill Dennis (Walter Pidgeon) cover the globe, cracking wise and trying to scoop each other on the biggest stories in the hottest hot spots. But they're rivals in more than work. They both love a fearless aviatrix (Myrna Loy) who may be Too Hot to Handle.
Five months after ticket sales for their Test Pilot zoomed into the wild blue yonder, Hollywood King and Queen (chosen in a nationwide poll) Gable and Loy reigned in this half-screwball, half-adventure classic. The charisma is irresistible. The story races from China to New York to South American jungles. And the only thing faster than the action is that breathless, snappy, smart '30s dialogue. Fasten your seatbelt!
A woman searching for her missing brother in the Amazon jungle is aided by two news photographers. The men are rivals; both for the story and her affections.
Action and romance collide in this tale of two newsreel cameramen who will stop at nothing for a shot. The rivalry between Chris Hunter and Bill Dennis heats up when Alma Harding, an attractive female aviator, comes on the scene. In search of her missing brother, Alma ends up accompanying the intrepid shooters on a spine-tingling trek through the Amazon jungle. Burning planes crashes, voodoo worshippers, assorted sieges and explosions -- these are some of the dangers that confront the threesome in the course of their thrill-packed adventure.
