Description

    Trader Horn (MGM, 1931). Insert (14" X 36"). The first non-documentary film shot in Africa was this adventure that told the exaggerated true-life story of Aloysius 'Trader' Horn. Since the rage of the day was "All-Talkies," a sound crew was sent to Africa. However, the sound quality was poor and all the dialogue scenes were reshot in Culver City. All of those shots were later dropped when a rumor started that none of the film was shot in Africa. This insert has tears on the lower left and top right corners, on the right border, on the center left that extends into the image, and across "Mayer." There are chips in the lower right corner and the left border, and the top border has been replaced. A marvelous poster that conveys some of the excitement involved in the filming. Very Good/Fine on Paper.
