A Visit to a Chief's Son (1974), African Journey (1989), and The Great Elephant Escape (1995), you'd think that sub-Saharan Africa would easily make my list of "good places," like India or the Pacific, but it didn't. When I was a kid in the 1960s and 1970s, I heard about Africa mostly from Tarzan movies: steaming jungles occupied by hoards of gibbering natives who were semi-nude but not very muscular, and spent all of their time trying to kill white people. Here they plan to burn Tarzan's Boy (Johnny Sheffield) at the stake. He was also almost drowned, forced to drink poison, attacked by a giant spider, and tied up for no particular reason.
Jungle comic books occasionally showed natives who were "civilized," though still in loincloths, but they were always in the background. The focus was on the white European or American leads. Here the white Dan-El is in the foreground, and the black Natongo in the background.
Chuck Connors. I never saw them.
I heard about the real Africa some time later, but it didn't help much. Sub-Saharan Africa today has some of the most repressively homophobic regimes on the planet.
