USA, 1962 (Howard Hawks; 2h 37m)

Hawks’s only non-western collaboration with John Wayne, Hatari! is regarded as one of the director’s last hurrahs. It also demonstrates that Hawks remained an innovator even into his fifth decade as a filmmaker, designing the camera-car hybrid used for the hunting sequences himself, creating pulse-quickening action sequences well into his sixties.

Without question, Hatari! is among the best American Pictures of 1962 […] Anyone who does not see the beauty and brilliance of this picture is either a snob or a fool, and both are really the same.
