    Thank you for your quick response!
    The movie seems to be “Hatari!” (1962) with John Wayne.

    Take care.

    That song is “Baby Elephant Walk,” from a movie in the 1940s (I think) about the congo…that particular version is by Henry Mancini. About the subtitles, sorry, I just don’t have time! I did do it for Episode 5…

    Good job Frank!
    I like very much the historical perspective in the beginning of each episode.
    By the way, what is the theme of the clarinet song at the end of this video? (during your failed interview of the elephant?)
    Otherwise, I know some rudiments of khmer and it should be intructive for some of us if we could have the english subtitle of your extreme khmer episodes.
    Thank you!
