"Across the World" Martin and Osa Johnson's Movie
Across the World  79 Minutes
A trip up the Nile from 1927 to 1928 with friend and supporter George Eastman (of Eastman-Kodak fame) and watching the adventures of the three American Boy Scouts on safari highlight this documentary from Martin and Osa Johnsons' third African expedition. This film is a "silent with sound" transition. Scenes in the field are silent, but the opening, a cocktail party "home movie" premiere, has sound and was shot in Martin and Osa's New York City apartment.
