Hatari (1962) (BD) [Blu-ray]
Manufacturer: Paramount Catalog Brand: Warner Manufacturing
Hatari (1962) (BD)Hatari! is Swahili for "danger"-and also the word for action, adventure and broad comedy in this two-fisted Howard Hawks effort. Joh n Wayne sta rs as the head of a daring Tanganyka-based group which captures wild ani mals on behalf of the world's zoos. Hardy Kruger, GÃ©rard Blain and Red Buttons are members of Wayne's men-only contingent, all of whom are redu ced to jello when the curvaceous Elsa Martinelli enters the scene. In tr ied and true Howard Hawks fashion, Martinelli quickly becomes "one of th e guys," though Wayne appa rently can't say two words to her without spa rking an argument. The second half of this amazingly long (159 minute) f ilm concerns th e care and maintenance of a baby elephant; the barely cr edible finale is devoted to a comic pachyderm stampede down an urban Afr ican street, ending literally at the foot of Martinelli's bed. The othe r scene worth mentioning involves comedy-relief Red Buttons' effo rts to create a fireworks-powered animal trap. Not to be taken seriously for a minute, Hatari is attractively packaged and neatly ti ed up with a danc eable-pranceable theme song by Henry Mancini.]]>

Featuring Hollywood favorites Sam Neill (JURASSIC PARK) and Oscar(R)-winner Dianne Wiest (Best Supporting Actress, 1994, BULLETS OVER BROADWAY) in a superb cast -- critics and moviegoers alike were captivated by this powerful motion picture event! Although it's best viewed on a big theatrical screen to take full advantage of Robert Richardson's breathtaking widescreen cinematography, it seems likely that most people will see this classy romance in the comfort of their own homes. Adapted from the bestseller by Nicholas Evans and directed by Robert Redford, the film did respectable business at the box-office, but it was too sprawling and too soapy to be a bona fide hit. Redford stars as the title character, a Montana rancher named Tom Booker, who possesses the specialized talent of healing traumat...
