I watched The Snows of Kilimanjaro with a pleasure. Most movies, even the greatest ones, evaporate like mist once you've returned to the real world; they leave memories behind, but their reality fades free quickly. Not this one. The Snows of Kilimanjaro is a great movie and there is no doubt. The Snows of Kilimanjaro is the only movie I saw full, more than once. The direction is sublime. Excellent photos, tempo and editing. Henry King's films play on emotions and are able to move a more sensitive viewer. Don't waste your time, click on play button and watch.... Show more
