Incomparably the best jungle picture made so far.

A good-looking animal picture.

This shrewdly fashioned jungle melodrama proved to be thoroughly exciting to the spectators last night and it seemed as though many of them were a bit nearer than they ever wanted to be to a big game hunt.

One of the most splendid premieres of the year. [Full Review in Spanish]

September 10, 2019 | Full Review…

An exciting film, very well photographed, but quite without any whole artistic conception.

The picture is a magnificent record of wild life in Central Africa, abounding in thrilling episodes and in scenic splendors.

Audience Reviews for Trader Horn

Known for producing some of the best wildlife footage of its time, Trader Horn unfortunately decides to give us a story line as well. It's a white man defeats the jungle sort of inappropriate thing.
