Americano, The (1955)

Sam Dent (Glenn Ford) sets off on the long journey from Texas to Brazil with a cargo of prize Brahma bulls for a wealthy Brazilian rancher.

At Boa Vista, entrance to the treacherous Matto Grosso country, he learns that his client has been mysteriously murdered.

Veteran Hollywood star Ford gives a characteristically rugged performance in the title role.
