DIRECTOR: HOWARD HAWKS
CAST: JOHN WAYNE, HARDY KRüGER, ELSA MARTINELLI, RED BUTTONS, GéRARD BLAIN
Gérard Blain joins an international cast for this rowdy, drunken outing on the African savannah, the pinnacle of Hawks’s obsessive adventure-comedies focusing on friendships between men, their proverbial lives and loves, set against backdrops of dangerous, specialized work (in this case big game hunting). More than a little nuts and immensely entertaining, it’s sprawling, vibrant, and features baby elephants and John Wayne bodying a full-grown rhinoceros.
Hatari! will be screening on an IB Technicolor print.
Screening as a part of our Gérard Blain series.
