Two early adventurers-cum-cinematographers Martin E. and Osa Johnson made a number of features set in Africa, including Trailing African Wild Animals ( 1923), Congorilla ( 1932), and Baboona ( 1935). After the death of her husband in 1937, Osa Johnson worked solo, with later films including I Married Adventure ( 1940) and African Paradise ( 1942). Osa Johnson published a volume on the careers of herself and her husband, I Married Adventure ( Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott), in 1940.
