Stanley and Livingstone

Synopsis: When American newspaperman and adventurer Henry M. Stanley comes back from the western Indian wars, his editor James Gordon Bennett sends him to Africa to find Dr. David Livingstone, the missing Scottish missionary. Stanley finds Livingstone ("Dr. Livingstone, I presume.") blissfully doling out medicine and religion to the happy natives. His story is at first disbelieved. When Livingstone later dies, Stanley returns to continue the good doctor's work (which, of course, never really happened).
Director(s): Henry King, Otto Brower
Production: 20th Century Fox Film Corporation

- Glad you are back Mr. Stanley!

-How are you?

Mr. Bennet's waiting for you.

Stanley! Glad to see you. Sit down.

Another delegation from Boss

Tweed still trying to buy me out.

How about letting me do a

series on the graft sometime

The job you did in Wyoming. Great story. Reaped

the town with it. Reaped the whole country.

You happen to have a man Sloke

still in your expense account.

He took care of me like a baby there.

I promised him a trip to New York.

If we came out with our hair

where it should be. It's on you.

All right! All right! I am glad that you are still alive.

- Me too!

- Have a cigar!

- Thanks!

Stanley! What do you know about Livingstone?

- Living. You mean the new bar tender at Joe's?

- No, no, Dr. Livingstone. The missionary, explorer

- Dr. Livingstone.

Like to read a good newspaper once

in a while. Like the London Globe.

Read that. Just came

over the Atlantic cable.

The London Globe's expedition

to Africa to find Dr. Livingstone.

Has just returned to Zanzibar, the African interior.

Mr. Garreth Tyce the leader of the expedition

And son of the publisher has

prostrated the tropical fever.

The expedition however reports that it has obtained

positive truth That Dr. Livingstone is dead.

Well that settles the old boy.

If I can prove that Tyce is

wrong about Dr. Livingstone..

I will make him a laughing

stock of every newspaper office.

- Now get ready... you are going to Africa.

- What?

I will have that old fool on toast.

- Oh now, wait a minute! Wait a minute.

While you are having that old on

toast what am I supposed to be doing?

- Finding Livingstone!

- Oh I see! Is that all?

You are not losing your nerve, are

you? -Now wait a minute Mr. Bennet...

I have got a little reputation

of my own. Where do I come off?
