Dir. Howard Hawks. 1962, 157 mins. Archival 35mm IB Technicolor print. With John Wayne, Elsa Martinelli. Sean Mercer (an outstanding John Wayne) and his ensemble cast cavort over the African landscape filling orders from zoos for wild animals. Will the arrival of a female wildlife photographer (Martinelli) change their ways? This breezy African hunting adventure, which includes dramatic wildlife chases and the magnificent backdrop scenery of Mount Meru, a dormant volcano, is one of Hawks’s most relaxed and personal films.
