Description by OLDIES.com:

"In BORNEO, Martin Johnson filmed the pictorial climax of a great career that led him through the dark, mysterious byways of the unknown world..."

The world-famous explorers, Martin and Osa Johnson, undertake their "Last Adventure" in this historic film. Flying in their giraffe-spotted Sikorsky amphibian airplane, the Spirit of Africa, the Johnsons travel to the breathtaking rainforests of British North Borneo (known today as Sabah.) Heading down the Kinabatangan river in a canoe, they encounter flying snakes, tree-climbing fish, and oysters that grow on trees! They also take the first known film of the rare Proboscis monkey and capture a wild orangutan. Tragically, Martin was killed in a commercial plane crash as he and Osa were en route to Hollywood to provide narration and final edits on this film. With Osa seriously injured in the crash, famed radio announcer (and lifelong friend) Lowell Thomas stepped in to provide narration. The film was later reissued as Borneo...Land of the Devil Beast.

This fully-authorized edition of Borneo is the fourth release brought to you in conjunction with the Martin and Osa Johnson Safari Museum. Dedicated to preserving the legacy of these two remarkable naturalists, it has been ranked the #1 Museum in Kansas. The Martin and Osa Johnson Safari Museum features award-winning displays of the Johnsons' lives and adventures, African cultures, and special exhibits. Educational programs are offered year-round for children and adults, with regular showings of the Johnsons' films and a large research library also available. Visit the Martin and Osa Johnson Safari Museum while in the Johnsons' home state of Kansas.
