An evening pause: From the 1962 Howard Hawks film Hatari!, this scene, and the music that goes with it, shows off the film’s light-hearted adventurous tone. And yes, that’s John Wayne following the girl. Since then this music has been reused innumerable times in youtube pet videos.

Hat tip Diane Zimmerman.

    Music: one of favorites Brandi Carlile – The Story https://youtu.be/P0jiALPCtH8

    “All of these lines across my face
    Tell you the story of who I am
    So many stories of where I’ve been
    And how I got to where I am

    But these stories don’t mean anything
    When you’ve got no one to tell them to
    It’s true, I was made for you”
