Clint Eastwood with MS Takedown
      #306237 - 11/10/17 09:29 PM

Here's a few pix from a little noticed 1990 film titled 'White Hunter, Black Heart'

The film starred Eastwood in a semi biographical role based on famed director John Houston as viewed by a young writer who had been brought to Africa to finish the screenplay of The African Queen.

In one scene Eastwood's character is outfitting for safari at an expensive salon when he says (iirc), "and throw in a couple of these little six point fives, the Mannlichers."

MS takedown rifles are featured in several scenes. It's not a bad flick, I have it on DVD.











Even Clint can't help but smile when holding a Mannlicher Schoenauer

'Fraid I must agree.
Interesting rifles and Africana notwithstanding, perhaps Clint's worst movie ever...?

I believe in real life the writer working for Houston was Ray Bradbury.

All I got out of it was that they filmed it at Vic Falls Hotel and I was there in 87.

As far as I was concerned it was one of Clint's "arty" films. Supposed to have a message in it.

I was very disappointed with it. To the point of avoiding buying a copy.

LongDropBucket was up again displaying images so fixed these and moved them to the NE server. Yep they are available elsewhere in the net anyway, but easier from the thread image source.

I didn't mind the movie at all. Would rather watch it than most of the movies coming out of Hollywood these days.
