Ernest Hemingway’s famous short story called “The Snows Of Kiliminjaro,” a modern classic, is a fable pointing to man’s primary purpose as the seeking of the unobtainable. The movie of the same name, although billed as by Hemingway, owes little to his plot and less to his theme. A successful pot-boiling author (Gregory Peck) is first shown dying of blood-poisoning on the African veldt below Kiliminjaro. awaiting the arrival of a rescue party while his wealthy wife (Susan Hayward) does her best to get him well. In flashback form, he recalls his past. These memories contain some stunning scenes, some stunning women (Ava Gardner. Helene Stanley. Ava Norring. Hildegarde Neff). But none of them make much sense or helps explain what makes him tick. Modern Screen (Dec 1952-Nov 1953).
