Those Amusing Costumes
A fifteen minute spoof of "Trader Horn" (1931), this Dogville short creates some fascinating B&W visuals, thanks to inspired costumes and creative editing. The jungle plot focuses on the attempt to rescue the white goddess, Nina T-Bone, at the hands (or paws) of wild Africans. The film is full of dubious stereotypes.

But the main point here is the amusing human costumes the dogs wear, and the editing which allows the dogs to walk around on two legs and animate, as if they were human. I could have done without the lion and gorilla fight segment, where two men dress up in animal costumes. It's hokey, and seems inserted to extend the film's runtime.

Overall, the film is totally politically incorrect by today's standards. But we can overlook the stereotypes given the era. Enjoy the film for the entertaining costumes and silly plot. Not to be taken seriously, "Trader Hound" offers some comic relief.
