- Hollywood Homely: At one point, Kurt says that Dallas isn't very attractive, which is a bit hard to swallow given that Elsa Martinelli is a former fashion model. In all fairness, it only seems to be Kurt who has this opinion, and he might have just said it to push Sean's buttons.
- Moment of Awesome: John Wayne and crew chasing down and capturing a rhino. No stuntmen, no special effects: just Wayne and the other actors really chasing down and capturing a real wild rhinoceros. Good lord!
- Signature Song: Henry Mancini's "Baby Elephant Walk".
- Values Dissonance: The protagonists catch wild animals to be sold at zoos and circuses, completely legally.
YMMV / Hatari!
