Loosely based on a book by real-life trader Alfred Aloysius Horn, Trader Horn stars Harry Carey, on safari with his sidekick (Duncan Renaldo) and his African guide Rencharo (Mutia Omoolu).

They encounter a missionary woman who is searching for her long-lost daughter Nina (Edwina Booth), whose sexual allure as a 'white woman gone native' creates dramatic tension.

Winning the 1931 Academy Award® for Best Picture, the film's spectacular jungle footage stunned audiences on its release.
