Product Notes

Brian Desmond Hurst directs this portrayal of the Mau Mau movement and uprising during the period between 1950 and 1956, in Kenya. Alan Howard (Dirk Bogarde) returns to Kenya to visit his brother and with hope of rekindling a romance with Mary Crawford (Virginia McKenna), whose family owns and operates a farm close to his brother's. Arriving at his brother's farm, Alan discovers he has been brutally murdered by the Mau Mau. Howard has absolutely no compassion for the black population and decides to stay on, against all odds, to defy the uprising. Tensions grow between Mary and Alan, brought on by his prejudice toward the native doctor Karanja (Earl Cameron), whom he believes is the Mau Mau leader and responsible for his brother's murder. It's not until Dr. Karanja sacrifices his own life to save Alan and Mary that the real Mau Mau leader is revealed and Alan begins to understand that the black population, as a whole, is not responsible. Tense drama with graphic and gritty action scenes. Simba, based on true events, was nominated for 3 BAFTA awards and the coveted United Nations award".
