Description by OLDIES.com:

The year is 1912. Kramer (Harry Andrews) has carved out a private empire for himself in West Africa, complete with a personal militia. But, as his daughter, Erica (Ursula Andress), and the American geologist Dan Rockland (George Segal) are celebrating their engagement, Kramer's fabulous diamond, the Southern Star, disappears. Dan's African helper, Matakit, suspected of the theft, flees into the jungle, pursued by Dan and Erica, who believe him to be innocent, and by Kramer's militia commander, who wants the diamond for himself. Based on a Jules Verne tale, this comedic adventure features excellent performances from its top-notch cast (including Orson Welles). Directed by Sidney Hayers (Burn, Witch, Burn! and TV's "The Avengers").

Product Description:

In this comic adventure, an impoverished Yankee geologist and his cohorts band together with a group of fortune hunters to search for the priceless "Southern Star," an enormous diamond. The geologist has a double stake in the hunt as he not only hopes to earn much-needed cash, he also hopes to marry the daughter of the financier who hired them. It is the geologist and his partner who find the diamond first. During the party the businessman holds to celebrate, the lights suddenly go out. When they flick back on, the diamond and the geologist's partner has disappeared, leaving the geologist to shoulder the blame for the crime. To prove his innocence the geologist sets out after this thieving partner. He is pursued by a group of crooks who want the valuable rock for themselves. In the end, the geologist triumphs and the businessman allows him to marry his daughter.
