After Dr. Leakey has instructed Dian Fossey about the jeep, a man in a beige suit beckons him to the plane. In the next shot with Leakey near to him, he is suddenly wearing sunglasses, but in subsequent shots after they've run to the plane and turn around one last time, the sunglasses are gone again.

Mukara was here this afternoon. He is very angry with you. He says you are telling people there's typhoid on the mountain. The government needs money from the tourists. They get very mad if you scare these people away. Mukara also said last week you shot a tourist in the meadow.
Now, that is not true. I shot way over their heads.
They are not going to turn this mountain... into a goddamn zoo!

Dian Fossey (Sigourney Weaver) brow beats Dr. Louis Leakey into letting go into the jungle to research mountain gorillas. She's joined by a local guide Sembagare and a National Geographic photographer Bob Campbell (Bryan Brown).
It's a well biopic from director Michael Apted of an amazing woman and an amazing life. The performances are first class. Sigourney Weaver is able to project a certain self confidence in the character.
The other thing I want to mention is the realism of the gorilla suits. It is hard to tell the difference between the real thing and the suits. It's of the utmost importance because we wouldn't want to be hampered by 'Planet of Apes' retreads.
