Trader Horn, the 1931 W.S. Van Dyke Africa jungle safari adventure thriller ("White Goddess of the Pagan Tribes. The cruelest woman in all Africa!"; "All talking picture"; "Based on the book by Ethelreda Lewis"; nominated for the Best Picture Academy Award; made the year prior to his returning to Africa to make "Tarzan the Ape Man") starring Edwina Booth, Harry Carey Sr. (in the title role as Aloysius 'Trader' Horn), Olive Carey, Duncan Renaldo, and Mutia Omoolu. Note that this is a famous "bad luck" film, many of the crew contracted malaria, two people were killed, there were flash floods, instances of sunstroke, locusts and more. Edwina Booth was an up and coming actress, but she caught African sleeping sickness while making this movie, and her recovery took a long time, and her career never recovered. After filming, Duncan Renaldo encountered legal problems and was almost deported. As for Harry Carey, many consider this his last "A-picture" before starring in low-budget B-westerns and serials. Also note that there was an actual "Trader Horn". Author Ethelreda Lewis, a South African lady, was at her home in Johannesburg, and an old man came up to her house and offered to sell her items. He had been making his living traveling Africa with a large pack on his back containing kitchen utensils and other items which he sold door to door. He also said he had been a big game hunter, a Scotland Yard detective, and many other occupations, and that at that time, he thought he had met more African natives than any other white man who had ever lived!
