When Margaret and Robert start out on their safari driving across the country, in close shots they are shown looking out the right side of their truck at wildlife, but the shots of the animals they are presumably viewing are taken out the left side of a moving vehicle. See more »
This is taunt and good. It presents the way one expects a Hemingway story to present. It held my interest from beginning to end. Is this a love triangle? Is this a film noir set on an African safari?
I liked it because the cast was limited with only three principle characters: Wilson (Gregory Peck) as the guide on the African safari, and a husband and wife, Mr & Mrs. Macober (Robert Preston & Joan Bennett), with deep-set marital problems.
Perhaps, Wilson was right when he said, it is not good to take a woman on safari.
The back and forth emotions that occur on this safari mirror the stages of the safari and uncover the yin & yang of the husband and wife, and finally draw in Wilson too.
It was a good hunt and all was well.
The kills were clean---or where they?
