Synopsis by Hal Erickson
To finance such major productions as Ramona and Lloyds of London, 20th Century-Fox had to maintain a quota of such minor but entertaining potboilers as White Hunter. Warner Baxter plays the title character, Captain Clark Rutledge, a safari guide who can't stop brooding over the long-ago death of his father. When he is hired by Michael Varek (Wilfred Lawson), the man responsible for his father's demise, Rutledge at first seeks revenge. He is deflected from his murderous course when he falls in love with Varek's daughter Toni (June Lang). Though set in Africa, White Hunter was filmed in its entirety at Fox's Western Avenue backlot.
