Express train in deep Africa

Well, I won't add anything to the plot described above in the tag line.

I just saw this pretty well done Universal movie shot in 1940. As usual in Universal adventure and westerns film from these years, there is plenty of action and a little humor. Fast paced, you can see at the first watch it's not a MGM feature or a Paramount neither. MGM, for instance, are famous for their length or heaviness, and sometimes for the boredom they may give to the audience. Especially in adventure films. But I won't spit on the Lion's Company, although.

SOUTH TO KARANGA is no Jack Cardiff's masterpiece THE MERCENARIES, the story of a train crossing a hot Africa country side infested of savage hostile tribes. But it's a real entertaining movie from the 40's, as we can expect from Universal studios.
