Safari

Movie: Safari
Director: Edward H. Griffith
Produced by: Paramount
Released By: Paramount
MPAA Rating:

This studio-bound jungle yarn is uplifted by the spirited performances of its stars. After the death of her aviator lover, beautiful Linda Stewart marries wealthy sportsman Baron de Courland on the rebound. When the Baron arrives in Africa for a hunting expedition, he secures the services of jungle guide Jim Logan Sure as shootin’, Linda and Jim fall in love with one another, prompting the sadistic Baron to plot an appropriate revenge. Lynne Overman does a Jimmy Finlayson impression as a Scottish “Trader Horn” type, while Billy Gilbert is terrific as a malaprop-laden trading post owner. Screenwriter Delmar Daves manages to inject a bit of Left Wing ideology in an early scene, which surprisingly went unnoticed during the HUAC hearing in the late 1940s.
