The world-famous explorers, Martin and Osa Johnson, take a trip up the Nile River in this historic film, their first talkie feature. Shot in 1927 and 1928, the adventurers' third African expedition proved to be one of their most eventful. While in Tanganyika's "lion country", members of their crew are almost attacked by the fierce cats. And in the Solomon Islands, the Johnsons themselves are captured by a tribe of cannibals! It isn't all perilous dangers, however, as the couple take time to play golf among the wildlife. Friend and supporter George Eastman, founder of Eastman-Kodak, accompanies them on their journey. Scenes in the field were shot without sound, to which the explorers' narration was later added. Wraparound sequences filmed at a cocktail party at Martin and Osa's New York apartment, however, are the first footage of the Johnsons with synchronized sound.This fully-authorized edition of Across the World is issued in conjunction with the Martin and Osa Johnson Safari Museum. Dedicated to preserving the legacy of these two remarkable naturalists, it has been ranked the #1 Museum in Kansas. The Martin and Osa Johnson Safari Museum features award-winning displays of the Johnsons' lives and adventures, African cultures, and special exhibits. Educational programs are offered year-round for children and adults, with regular showings of the Johnsons' films and a large research library also available. Visit the Martin and Osa Johnson Safari Museum while in the Johnsons' home state of Kansas.
