I Saw this movie when I was about 6 years old and remember it and the song.
I remember the scene of the elephant crashing through the bamboo wall and falling to its death. I also remember the following: The song in the movie is also called "Beyond the Blue Horizon". Dorothy Lamour had a "pet" tiger. she told Jackra that the tiger would swim in the water with her, which he did not believe. Eventually in the movie, the tiger does swim in a pool with Miss Lamour and Jackra finally believes her. Also, in the movie they called the elephant "the block".
Recently I was reminded of this movie while I was watching a TV program called "Raising the Mammoth". In this true story program, they show an expedition that has found a mammoth frozen in the ice and are attempting to dig it out. They referred to the mammoth as "the block". I was wondering if the word "block" refers specifically to a mammoth or other prehistoric elephant/mastodon, etc.
