Opening rhino hunt from Howard Hawks' "Hatari!"

Starring John Wayne and Red Buttons, with a fantastic score by Henry Mancini, this pre-credit sequence features a very real but now almost extinct African rhino. If they want to remake it, they’ll need CGI.

    Only thing wrong with using a real wild rhino is that you can tell it’s not the same one each shot, that is if you look at the horns

    God, I love this movie. John Wayne playing the hardass as usual, sweeping views of the East African savanna, Henry Mancini’s unforgettable score…it’s a synergistic combo.

    Luckily this chasings do not happen nowadays, when rhynos are up to extinction. But good actors indeed.

    Even as a small kid in another country far from the US, I was shocked and appalled at the brutal treatment of animals in this movie. I HATED this hunting of animals. Imagine if human beings were hunted by another species like this!!! I also hated the Bwana white colonial masters mentality and huge monumental sexism that John Wayne embodied. What a crude, sexist, animal hating macho asshole of a man! Thank god I live in the modern times when such behavior can be crushed by the heel of a woman’s foot. Yessss!!!!! I’d like to hunt the John Wayne’s of this world with a lasso and drag them to the ground, scared shitless then sold to a prison camp called a Zoo. Fucking assholes!!!

    This WAS my childhood. I watched this like twice a week

    This movie is hilarious, the way they constantly wind up the animals

  7. CALL OF THE WILL MAN on May 7, 2021 at 12:48 am

    How many animals in this movie are now gone forever…. 2 , I think

    You know what this movie had that’s sadly missing these days? Down time. Time for your characters to just chill and be people, growing a connection between the audience and the character.

    Best opening scene ever!!!!

  10. antaresrichard on May 7, 2021 at 12:53 am

    At 3:43 Dallas (Elsa Martinelli) appears seated next to Pockets (Red Buttons) in the cab of the truck! 😉

    Please send about 100 Hartari teams to Chicago.

    I’m pretty certain animals were hurt during this movie

  17. Bill Bright on May 7, 2021 at 1:01 am

    Only some of the crew rates goggles. That rino was gonna tear that guy a new corn chute.

    Been cool if one of those Cowboys jumped on board for a rino rodeo.

    That looks to be about a 49 or 50 Chevrolet. Mine is a 51. 216 stove bolt six. Dip and splash oiler
    Still going strong at 70 years old.

    My dad (M.H.D.S.R.I.P.) introduced me to this movie when I was still a kid. I’ve loved it ever since.

  19. ka4172 on May 7, 2021 at 1:05 am

    Love this adventure movie!

  20. Brad Hines on May 7, 2021 at 1:05 am

    To this day one of my all time favorite movies. As a kid in the sixties I used to sit on the hood of our station wagon with a cane pole and a loop at the end pretending I was John Wayne.

  21. Rodulf on May 7, 2021 at 1:06 am

    Wonderful movie that you can watch with kids. Makes you feel good. Back when people were human and normal.

    You just get so into the moment that you feel like you’re actually in the movie. Man, ♥️ this movie

  25. Alphonso Zorro on May 7, 2021 at 1:07 am

    CGI "rhinos" can’t fake the real ones.

  26. ChillyCloth on May 7, 2021 at 1:10 am

    i don’t wanna take it for granted

  27. jazzfusionary on May 7, 2021 at 1:10 am

    A great John Wayne Howard Hawks collaboration and with a great Mancini score one of the best movies ever.

  28. Rockin' Ross on May 7, 2021 at 1:12 am

    A very underrated John Wayne film. Not mentioned very often on lists of his greats.
    Filming was exquisite and real, and was one of those “feel good” flicks you could watch over and over.

    I love old movies from 80’s

  31. Daniel Benson on May 7, 2021 at 1:15 am

    Thank you for showing this part😊. I just wonder when that animal worshipping group called peta will chose to pitch a hissy fit over this movie😊. Idiots, EVERY ONE OF THEM.

    Great momie!

    Poor Rhino:(

    sa me désole je n arrive pas avoir se film hatari avec johnn wayne en français

  36. Torsten Prausewetter on May 7, 2021 at 1:20 am

    Sehr guter Abenteuerfilm mit prächtigen Bildern und perfekten Schauspielern. John Wayne diesmal nicht als Revolverheld sondern als raubeiniger Tierfänger, der sich in eine Fotografin verliebt und die Hilfe seiner Freunde und dreier Elefantenbabys braucht um sein Happy-End zu bekommen. Geniale Arbeit von Howard Hawks.

  37. sclogse1 on May 7, 2021 at 1:21 am

    The whole music track is on side two of the album. Jean Luc Godard admired the film for it’s attitude toward plot.

  38. cat 11 on May 7, 2021 at 1:21 am

    must see on a big screen with a good sound system, I got to see it 1962, will never forget that night as a kid.

  39. sfenodonte on May 7, 2021 at 1:23 am

    Everything is perfect, a beautiful film for children and adult women and for African nature lovers

  40. watchgoose on May 7, 2021 at 1:24 am

    yes, love this. strange though, these movies used to be available free on YT, now people have to pay.

    This is not the anti capitalistic bdsm band I was looking for.

  42. Aldwyck on May 7, 2021 at 1:29 am

    Enjoy it while you can kiddos. Cancel Culture will come for this eventually.

  43. sfenodonte on May 7, 2021 at 1:31 am

    Exactly, the plot today would be so maybe without cigarette smoke and catch of monkeys then you add a battle against the poachers and … nothing perfect.
    Wanting you could also do the film with the children and grandchildren of the characters of John Weine and Martinelli … even if such a temporal difference is not usual in the film script (it would be the first time, usually the maximum is 20- 30 years here almost 60 years)

    Maybe a producer reads here and …………….

  44. Tacard on May 7, 2021 at 1:31 am

    0/10, this isn’t the Hatrið mun sigra I was looking for.

  45. Nicole Bowstead on May 7, 2021 at 1:32 am

    Love this movie

  47. cat 11 on May 7, 2021 at 1:35 am

    Never forget this film, saw in our downtown movie theater as a kid. it was an old theater but they had a great sound system.

  48. Philip Neidlinger on May 7, 2021 at 1:37 am

    Most of the characters CHAIN SMOKED in this film.
