Africa Screams is a 1949 American adventure comedy film starring Abbott and Costello. It parodies the safari genre. Diana Emerson visits the book section of Klopper's Department store looking for a copy of Dark Safari by the famed explorer Cuddleford. She tells the clerk, Buzz Johnson, that she will pay $2,500 for a map that is inside the book. Buzz's friend and co-worker, Stanley Livington, an armchair explorer, has read the book and says he is familiar with a map in it. Buzz brings Stanley to Diana's home to draw the map, but when he overhears Diana offer Clyde Beatty $20,000 to lead an expedition to capture a legendary giant ape, Buzz realizes that the map is worth considerably more than $2,500. Buzz asks for more money and for he and Stanley to join the safari. What ensues is a riotous comedy that involves cannibals, apes, alligators and so much more! You will love this comedy.
