King Solomon's Mines and two others that are classics.
There are three classic movies about early colonial Africa. 'Trader Horn'; starring Harry Cary; 'King Solomons Mines'; Granger - Kerr and 'Out of Africa'; Redford - Streyp. In the first two, old Africa was available, in the last it was not. The Technicolour and acting of the 'Mines' was fantastic!, although many don't realize that the scenes of the cavernous mines were filmed in Carlsbad Nat'l. Park and the trek into the great desert before the Kalahari region was actually White Sands New Mexico. The romantic wonderment of Granger washing Kerr's hair at Murchison Falls was copied quite nicely by Redford and Streyp. The green hills of the Watusi highlands were copied nicely in Karen Blixens Nygong Hills estate. It will be some time before another film comes out to match the beauty and majesty of colonial Africa like the 'Mines' and 'Out of Africa'. Until then, these two stand alone.
