I today Man killer soul h air icon shudders at Jungle movie efforts Hollywood Story might be titled hits and misses below the Veldt or they pulled a wrong in the it concerns George Michaels a Ruddy English sounding native of South Africa whose for bears hailed from Lebanon. This Chap is actually a White Hunter and he has a merry chuckle at some of the boners pulled by Hollywood epics about Africa. Mind you american films Are very popular with movie goers in he remarked. But some of the things in those films Are so off the beam that they re ludicrous. For instance in Magambo Clark Gable shoots a Black Leop Ard out of a tree. There Are no Black leopards in Africa the picture also showed a cheetah walking quietly through Ava Gardner s tent at night. That would never happen. At the slightest sound the cheetah would be racing i have been watching Somel of the african shows on to too. The other night i saw a chapter of Ramar of the Jungle which j had a Battle Between a Tiger and a water Buffalo. Neither is found in another thing Michaels finds amusing is the elaborate safari in most .

They expected a big production africans Are also amused by the portrayals of the coloured people in african films. The tribes Are often mixed up with one kind of people shown As living in a Village that another tribe uses. And they Are generally shown All decked out in feathers and fancy at tire. That is Only for ceremonies. The rest of the time they Wear Only a loin cloth. Many pictures show the col ored people As fierce and menacing. Nonsense there Are no hostile natives except in the most Remote and inaccessible areas of Africa. Even those who Haven t seen White men arc curious about them. They la gather around you in interest not poise Spears at you. Another common scene shows the animals charging the Hunt ers. African animals Are so wary of humans that they will run away at the fist sound. Only those who Are maddened by Dis ease or the weak weapons of natives would Michaels has made a Lucra Tive business of combining Hunt ing and movie making. He Long acted As guide and operated a gun shop in Victoria. Now he has made a full length movie african which Allied artists will release Early next year. You can bet that it will be authentic.
