"Marguerite Harrison, Merian Cooper, and Ernest B. Schoedsack travel through Asia Minor to reach a tribe of nomads in Iran known as the Bakhtiari. They follow the tribesmen on their 48-day trek across deserts, rivers, and mountains to reach summer pasture for their flocks. The hardships and conquests of the 50,000 tribesmen are shown: fording the treacherous waters of the Karun River by floating on rafts buoyed by inflated goatskins; ascending an almost perpendicular mountain only to be confronted by yet another, pathless and covered with deep snow; and finally descending to their goal--a fertile and grassy valley. Personages: Merian Cooper, Ernest B. Schoedsack, Marguerite Harrison, Haidar Khan (chief of Bakhityari tribe), Lufta (son of Haidar Khan)"--AFI catalog, 1921-1930

Gow the headhunter( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gow is not only a true curiosity but also in many ways a key influence of later Cooper and Schoedsack productions including King Kong. The footage in Gow was produced by Edward A. Salisbury, a wealthy British adventurer, who in 1920 set sail in an 80-ton yacht equipped with a motion picture laboratory to, in his words, catch and hold for history a photo record of the fast, disappearing races of the South Seas Islands. Cooper and Schoedsack were among the cameramen on this two-year expedition that documented genuine head-hunters and cannibals along its route. The material was originally released as four separate films in the silent era and was consolidated as the film Gow, the headhunter for an illustrated lecture by expedition member William Peck. Peck recorded his own cringe-inducing commentary in 1931. Gow was reissued as an exploitation film into the 1950s under the title Cannibal Island, but it was made with a serious purpose. True to Salisbury's intent, it indeed documents vanished cultures Gow is mastered for this edition in high definition from the original 35mm fine grain master positive
