Tired old queen at the movies


lark Gable, Ava Gardner, Grace Kelly and a cast of thousands head for high African adventure in John Ford's Mogambo (1953).

Shot on location in Technicolor, it's the next best thing to an African safari with Ava and Grace, both in Oscar nominated roles, vying for the attentions of a love starved Gable. Ironically, this was a re-make of Red Dust, a picture Gable had made twenty years earlier with Jean Harlow and Mary Astor. Loaded with action, scenery and sex appeal, anyway you look at it, Mogambo is "Afri-colossal!" Happy New Year!
