Jivaro (1954) also known as Lost Treasure of the Amazon, is a 3-D Technicolor film starring Fernando Lamas, Rhonda Fleming and Brian Keith, directed by Edward Ludwig. Publicity material for the film translates Jivaro as "headhunters of the Amazon".
Originally filmed in stereoscopic 3-D, due to a decline in interest Jivaro was not presented in that format in its original release. It later had its 3-D debut on September 17, 2006 at The World 3-D Expo in Hollywood.
Alice Parker (Fleming) arrives at the Brazilian trading outpost of Rio Galdez (Lamas) in search of her fiancé (Keith), an alcoholic engineer who has ventured into dangerous Jívaro territory on a quest for gold.
