Some of the fabric worn by the Watutsi are imported prints. With the desert serving to isolate the tribe from others it is unlikely that they would have access to such fabrics. See more »
It's occurred to me that since your husband's body was never found, you can't inherit his money until you prove that he's dead. That could be the reason for this visit.

The film follows an excellent hunter (Granger) who is payed to go on a safari to find the lost husband of Deborah Kerr and Richard Carlson. He reluctantly agrees. Along the way they run into different perils. Including many tribes that want the group dead.
The film is very exciting. And you feel for the characters when they come into contact with danger. I wish more action films could make you do that. The performances are the reason behind this. It's too bad that the actors and actresses in the film weren't nominated for Oscars. I doubt they deserved to win, but they deserved to be up.
The script is also very good. It strays away from the book just a little bit. But I have no problem with that because the film, by itself, is very good.
The cinematography and editing are flawless. And they rightly won Oscars. The film was also nominated for Best Picture. It's one of the better adventure films.
