Clyde Devinna. The Democrat-American (Sallisaw, Oklahoma) 28 Apr. 1932 - HARRY CAREY LAUDS COOL BRAVERY OF TECHNICIANS...
HARRY CAREY LAUDS COOL BRAVERY OF TECHNICIANS Actor Who Played "Trader Calls Them Heroes of Expedition Horn" (Players Interview) "Imagine sneaking out into the jungle in the dead of night to adjust a microphone on a tree—unable to show a light and not knowing when a python, a leopard, a lion, or what not might grab you. The boys did it almost every night." ,Thl¥ is the tribute of Harry Carey to the courageous sound and cameramen who accompanied the "Trader Horn" expedition into the African jungles, to. film and record Metro- Ooldwyn-Mayer'.s huge drama of jungle life. The actors; insists Carey, had an easy time of it as compared with the technicians. Cites Insurances "I saw Anderson, the sound engineer, 6et up a microphone and get back to safety just about three feet before a lion leaped at the machine with a roar," relates Carey. "I have seen Clyde DeVinna. the cameraman, and Bob Roberts stand and calmly train their lenses on a rhinoceros careening toward them, their only hope of safety being the accuracy of the bullet of W. S. Van Dyke, the director. It takes a lot of faith in a man's shooting to do that." Carey headed the cast in the motion picture safari that invaded the African jungles to film the thrilling transcription of the famous book. He had his adventures, too. He shot lion and buffalo, caught huge pythons with a lariat, was caught in a flood and almost wasljed into the waiting jaws of crocodiles. He had a touch of jungle fever. So did Edwina Booth and Duncan Renaldo, the other principals. Silent About Self But of his own adventures he says nothing. The perils and the cool bravery of the "working crew," he says, transcend any of his experiences.
