Stanley and Livingstone (TCF 1939, Spencer Tracy, Cedric Hardwicke)

Stanley and Livingstone

Adventure-filled biopic Stanley and Livingstone depicts the journey to Africa of journalist Henry Stanley (Spencer Tracy), and his quest to determine the fate of the Scottish missionary Dr. Livingstone (Cedric Hardwicke).

After enduring unspeakable hardships and disease, Tracy encounters Hardwicke and emerges from Africa with a new perspective on life. A fine performance from Tracy. Filmed on location in Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania.

The safari episodes in Stanley and Livingstone were filmed by pioneering nature filmmaker Osa Johnson, author of the memoir I Married Adventure. The scenes were shot in African locations close to where the real Dr. Livingstone once walked.
