Trader Horn (1931)

Director: W.S. Van Dyke

The history behind Trader Horn is far more engaging than anything in the film itself. It was the first picture said to be shot entirely on location in Africa (in reality, a second unit photographed some of the brutal animal attacks in Mexico), and its production led to two fatalities, a slew of sicknesses among the cast and crew, and the retirement of actress Edwina Booth, who was falsely reported as having been killed by a disease that she picked up while filming (Bill Goodman, writing for TCM, suggests that she contracted her unspecified illness while sunbathing in the nude without protection from the environment). 138 more words
