We're producing a three-hour PBS series on the idea of race here at
California Newsreel and are trying to track down footage from an old (circa
1930)ethnological film, "Wild Men of the Kalahari." The film may also be
known as "The Bushmen: An Epic of Wild Beasts and Wilder Men."

The film was apparently produced by anthropologist C. Ernest Cadle, U of
Denver, searching for the "missing link" between man and beast (turns out he
faked some of the footage).

Any leads on a print source would be greatly appreciated! Many thanks.
