Opening Night in New York of Martin Johnon's Film African Hunt

Writer and fellow adventurer Ernest Hemingway once said that Martin and Osa Johnson destroyed the preconceptions of the black continent by bringing Africa to the silver screen. The Johnsons' commercial films were very successful both in the states and around the world. Crowds stood in lines blocks long in New York and Los Angeles to buy a ticket for the next Johnson feature. To the Johnsons, their ventures into the wild world of Hollywood were more a necessity than a desire for stardom.
