The picture is an adventure story set in
Zanzibarin 1913 based on a novel written by Wilbur Smithand is very loosely inspired by real events.
It tells the story of Colonel Flynn O'Flynn (
Lee Marvin) a hard drinking American, his daughter Rosa ( Barbara Parkins), and an English poacher Sebastian ( Roger Moore) who falls in love with her.
The two men set out to get rich in German-controlled pre-
World War I Tanganyika, but must set their plans aside when they discover a German battleship awaiting repair and decide to attempt to destroy it.
Rosa has her own reasons for seeing the ship is destroyed -- the Germans took the life of her only child.
The film was shot in
Maltaand South Africa.

Critic Richard Eder did not like the film much. He wrote, "The movie has too much plot. All that action, conducted by characters without character—except for Fleischer, whose childlike joy in hurting people is almost appealing — produces lethargy...the movie is a passable midget in absurdly long pants."

Roger Ebert thought that "Shout at the Devil" is a big, dumb, silly movie that's impossible to dislike. It's so cheerfully corny, so willing to involve its heroes in every possible predicament, that after awhile we relax: This is the kind of movie they used to make, back when audiences were supposed to have the mentality of a 12-year-old. It's great to be 12 again." [ [http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/19761111/REVIEWS/611110301/1023 Ebert, Roger] "
