Africa Express is a 1975 Italian adventure film starring Ursula Andress, Giuliano Gemma, and Jack Palance that was filmed in Rhodesia. A sequel Safari Express with the same leads followed a year later.

Plot[edit]

John Baxter is a freewheeling trader of goods in Africa with a pet chimpanzee and one dream: to save enough money to buy a gas station in Detroit. Madeleine Cooper is the lady of mystery he runs into as she flees from Hunter.

Cast[edit]

Reception[edit]

Italian film critic Marco Giusti calls the film a "cute little movie" (Italian: "filmetto carino"), the best being Ursula Andress dressed as dirty sister.[1]
