Lucy said:
The first female character is Nina Fawcett, the wife of the main character Percy Fawcett. She doesn't have any conversations with other women in this movie.
The other female character is the fortune teller Madame Kumel who is only for a few minutes in this movie, but is surrounded by men in this scene.
This means the Bechdel test has failed.

There is a third female character: Percy Fawcett's daughter, Joan. She has one or two short lines, and is never shown talking to her mother.
