Africa Speaks! Africa Speaks 1930 Review PreCodeCom

Although the film was shot over the fourteen months of the expedition in the Serengeti and in Uganda, a scene involving an attack by a lion on a native was apparently staged at the Selig Zoo in Los Angeles and involved a toothless lion. Wildlife footage from the film was later reused in the twelve "Bomba, the Jungle Boy" films.
