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.[1]


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.[2]
