The same loving care that characterized Born Free, based on the true-life experiences of a British couple in Kenya and their pet lioness Elsa, is evident in the sequel.

The same loving care that characterized Born Free, based on the true-life experiences of a British couple in Kenya and their pet lioness Elsa, is evident in the sequel.

Sensitive screenplay, based on the Joy Adamson book of her and her gamewarden-husband’s efforts to assure that the cubs, following the death of their mother, shall live free and not be sent to a zoo, often carries a dramatic pitch. Possibly the most remarkable facet of picture is the animal photography of the cubs and other beasts that they encounter.

Some slight confusion exists in opening reels as the past of Elsa is reviewed briefly, but script develops logically as Nigel Davenport and Susan Hampshire, as the couple, are faced with the problem of the cubs’ future after they turn to raiding natives’ goat herds. Davenport resigns as a warden to devote himself entirely to capturing cubs and transporting them to a game preserve 700 miles distant.
