3 things about Howard Hawks’ HATARI!

Hatari! [1962]

1. A film set in Africa without an African in a speaking role.
2. “Who does she belong to?”
3. Muddy waterhole with three elephants.

Unexpectedly disquieting. It’s colorful but so shapeless, and while not exactly racist it’s definitely misogynistic. Weirdest Hawks movie I think I’ve ever seen.
