Wow, this is turning in to a serious list :) Thanks for the additions!

Man, right--how could I possibly have forgotten about those? I guess it's something like 35 years or more since I saw my last Tarzan movie...
re: dambe: the mali project, isn't that a documentary and therefore belongs in a separate list?
Right you are!

Thanks for all the other additions, and for posting all the video links. I'll have some more downloading to do over the next day or so... :)

Cheers,

Michi.
