Product Description

1865. Will Denton (Kirk Douglas) tends a light-house at the tip of Tierra del Fuego, contented to be away from the problems of civilization, and quickly adjusting to his new supervisor, Captain Moriz (Fernando Rey). But a shipload of utterly evil pirates show up, murder everyone they can find, and extinguish the light. They're wreckers, brigands who mislead ships into the rocks to loot the cargo and prey upon the victims. Their leader Captain Jonathan Kongre (Yul Brynner) is a diabolical fiend. Will hides out in the rocks but cannot keep himself from striking back: he saves innocent survivor Montefiore (Renato Salvatori) from the pirates' massacre, and together they wage a game of cat and mouse against Kongre and his cutthroats. Kongre breaks his own rule by keeping one captive alive - a beautiful Englishwoman named Arabella (Samantha Eggar). When Denton realizes she's there, the rules of the game change radically. 1971 / Color / 2:35 anamorphic 16:9 / 126 min. / La Luz del fin del mundo Starring Kirk Douglas, Yul Brynner, Samantha Eggar, Jean-Claude Drouot, Fernando Rey, Renato Salvatori Cinematography Henri Decae Production Designer Art Direction Enrique Alarcón Film Editor Bert Bates Original Music Piero Piccioni Written by Tom Rowe, Rachel Billington from a book by Jules Verne Produced by Alfredo Matas,Alexander Salkind, Ilya Salkind and Kirk Douglas Directed by Kevin Billington
