When some of the people here who have reviewed this film say the bad and wrong things about it they obviously have a rather misunderstanding of film making. This film, made in 1955 should not be compared to films off today. Yes, they killed animals in it but that was the way of life in the outback then, the film shows realism. Yes it was shot on location in the Northern Territory, however from what I have researched the last reel was lost and had to be reshot. Because of the expense of going back to the NT it was shot in the Blue Mountains. So be it many films are reshot in different places.
Enjoy JEDDA for what it is, an outstanding film of its day and far, far better than many films made now in 2019.
