I brought this film because of the story written by J.A.Hunter, the greatest great white hunter! I even went out and found a vhs player to play it on (i wish they made a dvd of this film). I love all films about the Kenya of old, and this one didnt disappoint. It is very well filmed with plenty of wildlife, gun fights with people and wildlife. And in sharp colour, which really makes the scenery of the film stand out. The only thing that would make this film better is if it was longer. If you can get hold of it, do so, if you like films set in africa, you have to see this.

This movie was filmed in 1959 and the video runs for 88 mts. The story is based on J A Hunter's book "African Bush Adventures". JA Hunter was a white hunter in Kenya and on retirement built a hotel at Kiboko, Kenya, called Hunters Lodge, where he died in 1963. Robert Adamson (Robert Taylor) is on ship towards Mombasa. Kenya, to find 2 missing Railway engineers. They think that the Arab slave caravan did harm to them and also the Warusha Tribe was dangerous.
Adamson is looking for porters to take them to the interior and the Great lake (Victoria Nyanza). Adamson had to take prisoners from Fort Jesus Jail at Mombasa. The railway line is blown up, so they walk. They get charged by a black rhino. The caravan is surrounded by the Warusha. Making peace with the Warusha, Adamson is off again on safari. The Arab's son Pasha is with Adamson. They arrive near Mt Kilimanjaro. They are out of water.
How will it end? Will Adamson achieve his motive to find the engineers and build the rest of the railway? Will they all reach the Great Lake?
The VHS is not in Cinemascope, as stated, but the technicolor is good. Enjoy the Kenyan countryside and the beautiful wildlife. The scenes of charging black rhino and the charging bull elephants are fantastic. Other VHS/DVD with similar African theme are:-
(1) Hatari, Howard Hawks, 1962
(2) The Last Safari, Stewart Granger, 1967
(3) The Lion of Africa, Kevin Connar, 1988
(4) Mogambo, John Ford, 1953
(5) King Solomon's Mines, Andrew Marton, 1950
Having born in Kenya, I found this VHS interesting.
Watch and ENJOY.
