Last night I watched an oldie but goodie, The Medicine Man / Last days of Eden (Sean Connery).
I had seen it several times, but years and years ago.
I would have bet anything whatsoever that in the movie, Sean Connery dies at the hands of the lumberers, and the formula for the cure for cancer is taken by his assistant to be developed / perfected / given to the world at the end of the movie.
It is obvious that I am confusing the last part of the plot with another movie on the same lines, ie forest / chemicals / cure for something / important formula for the good of humanity / hero dies / assistant continues work etc.
Can anyone name a movie on the above lines ?
I have been thinking and thinking and thinking, but my mind is blank.
