4. Africa Speaks

Description: The LikeTelevision™ Movie channel proudly presents Africa Speaks - a 1935 “talkie“ documentary about Africa, complete with great white hunters in their pith helmets. Sometimes they shoot cameras - other times they shoot guns. The film is remarkable in displaying the prejudice and political incorrectness of the period. The great white hunters find themselves superior in every way - yet 64 years later, they come off as the savage beasts.

5. Battle of Algiers, The

Description: The Battle of Algiers (or La Battaglia di Algeri if you prefer the original French title) is a remarkable movie about the sublime horrors of war. Directed by Gillo Pontecorvo, this 1965 documentary tells the story of the Battle of Algiers, which pitted a French colonial government against an emerging group of revolutionary Islamic rebels, who used terrorism and suicide attacks to gain independence, but lost this battle - as the French used torture to extract information to break up and destroy the terrorist cells. Ultimately, the country did gain independence, but only after the French broke the revolutionary movement. The movie is very realistic, though no archive war footage was used in the creation of this film. The story tries to tell an unbiased review of events that transpired during this tumultuous period for the Northern African country.

6. Beat The Devil

Description: Beat the Devil, (1953) was made in the later years of Humphrey Bogart's brilliant acting career. Bogie plays Billy Dannreuther, an opportunist hoping to get rich in Africa. But the treasure in this movie isn't gold, it is land that is rich in uranium deposits. The movie is presented to you in glorious Black and White, and in our view far surpasses Ted Turner's colorized version. The screenplay was written by Truman Capote and John Huston. The movie also stars Gina Lollabrigida, Peter Lorre, Jennifer Jones, and Robert Morley.
