    Synopsis


    Hatari!
    Hatari! is Swahili for "danger"--and also the word for action, adventure and broad comedy in this two-fisted Howard Hawks effort. John Wayne stars as the head of a daring Tanganyka-based group which captures wild animals on behalf of the world's zoos. Hardy Kruger, Gérard Blain and Red Buttons are members of Wayne's men-only contingent, all of whom are reduced to jello when the curvaceous Elsa Martinelli enters the scene. In tried and true Howard Hawks fashion, Martinelli quickly becomes "one of the guys," though Wayne apparently can't say two words to her without sparking an argument. The second half of this amazingly long (159 minute) film concerns the care and maintenance of a baby elephant; the barely credible finale is devoted to a comic pachyderm stampede down an urban African street, ending literally at the foot of Martinelli's bed. The other scene worth mentioning involves comedy-relief Red Buttons' efforts to create a fireworks-powered animal trap. Not to be taken seriously for a minute, Hatari is attractively packaged and neatly tied up with a danceable-pranceable theme song by Henry Mancini. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      I have always loved the film. What a wonderful soundtrack. Perfect for the film & made the film for me. Is dated now a days. Views with the “Dallas” character. Perfect to see the film in wide screen as it was meant to be. No real good extras on the DVD package to speak of. Yes, most of the film makers are no longer with us which explains this. And, you can concern it too long.

      even though this is obviously an older movie, my two kids really enjoy watching it. the acting and the writing are a little corny, but there are a lot of fun action scenes involving animals, and it keeps them entertained. and, I don't have to worry about anything offensive, like many of todays movies!

      This is another of those wonderful John Wayne movies that is almost never played on TV by AMC, TCM and other channels when they are having a John Wayne movie month. Thanks for having it available to us.

      I’ve only seen bits and pieces over time - never from beginning to end. Worth buying as a Christmas gift.
