A plane crash-lands deep in the South American jungle. Happy to be alive, the survivors soon realize that they are stranded deep in headhunter country--and not all of them are going to survive their cannibal attackers to make it Back from Eternity. Pilot Bill Lonagan (Robert Ryan) can get the plane back in the air, but only with enough power to take five of the eleven surviving passengers. Knowing that those left behind face certain doom, who will be left behind: condemned murderer Vasquez (Academy Award winner Rod Steiger); socialite Louise Melhorn (Phyllis Kirk); her weak-willed fiancé, Jud Ellis (Gene Barry); the copilot (Keith Andes); elderly married couple Martha and Professor Henry Spangler (Beulah Bondi and Cameron Prud'homme); songstress Rena (Anita Ekberg); the foul-tempered cop (Fred Clark); the soft-hearted crook (Jesse White); or tousle-haired kid Tommy Malone (Jon Provost)?
