Editors Note
Note John Wayne stars as Sean Mercer, a tough trapper who travels the world to capture animals and sell them to zoos. As he and his ragtag crew roam the plains of Africa searching for giraffes and zebras, they encounter Anna Maria "Dallas" D'Allesandro (Elsa Martinelli), a beautiful photographer who asks to travel with them. While the crew presses on, the excitement of the chase inevitably causes feelings of attraction to grow between gruff Mercer and pretty Dallas. Stunning wildlife photography colors this classic from legendary director Howard Hawks.
USA Today "...Russell Harlan's photography is so gorgeous that it got him an Oscar nomination for color work..." 07/27/2001 p.6E
Sight and Sound "Hawks' wonderfully entertaining shaggy-dog story about game hunters in Africa." 02/01/2004 p.68
