Legendary director Howard Hawks reteams with John Wayne, who heads a group of highly skilled professional game hunters in Africa. Only they don't use bullets – they capture the ferocious big game with strong rope and cameras for zoos and circus attractions. It is an exciting business that pits man against beats.
Hatari means danger in Swahili and Hawks' movie features some of the most exciting confrontations between man and beast ever captured on film. Henry Mancini's score is a stand out.
