Capturing Lions by Aeroplane



"The odor of gasoline indicates great wealth and to this they show due respect." So then: nothing has changed in the Middle East in nearly 100 years!

Cautionary note: numerous lions were hurt in the making of this film.

I'm appalled to see "it's" for "its" in the second title card.

"Afrighted the Arabs bury their faces in the sand. This fortifies them with grit."

You have to admire that guy along with the Major. He must have hands of leather. Watch him start to fiddle with that engine immediately after the landing.

I wonder if the producers of an old cartoon titled "The World of Commander McBragg" were aware of this short?

I am not overly sensitive and certainly no PETA member but, I think I will pass on the abuse of those beautiful animals.
