Critic Reviews for Trader Horn
This shrewdly fashioned jungle melodrama proved to be thoroughly exciting to the spectators last night and it seemed as though many of them were a bit nearer than they ever wanted to be to a big game hunt.
The picture is a magnificent record of wild life in Central Africa, abounding in thrilling episodes and in scenic splendors.
The first time Hollywood brought its cameras to the Dark Continent was for this adventure film that was probably more dangerous for the film crew than it was for the characters in the story.
By today's standards, Van Dyke's jungle adventure contains both racist and sexist elements, but at the time it was a stirring picture due to on-location shooting.
Audience Reviews for Trader Horn
Known for producing some of the best wildlife footage of its time, Trader Horn unfortunately decides to give us a story line as well. It's a white man defeats the jungle sort of inappropriate thing.
this pic supplied so many other films from 'mogambo' to 'king solomon's mines' with stock footage filmed during the making of this pre-code early talkie
The first drama filmed on location in Africa. Racist and very dated but my relative, Edwina Booth, shows up with flaring nostrils halfway through so I have to mention it!
