Real trucks, real bridge, real river in the real jungle.
The bridge scene, in particular - for which the film is mostly known, is extremely tense, forming the best scene in the film by some distance for me.
The 1953 film still rivals Sorcerer in grit and desperation, but Sorcerer notably presents its leading characters as less sympathetic, more authentically dispirited runaway fugitives.
