Audience Reviews for Stanley and Livingstone

  • Feb 04, 2020
    From one of the best years for movies ever comes this dull and slight biography about the journey to find a "lost" white missionary working in the then uncharted regions of darkest Africa in the 1870s, and then to get the work substantiated. Spencer Tracy helms the piece stoically although the plotting is spotty, and the rationale inconsistent. Charles Coburn and Cedric Hardwick do well as motivating factors. Meh.
