An account of time spent in the state of Mysore during the making of Elephant Boy (1937). Following the success of The Man of Aran (1934), the author's husband, Robert Flaherty, was brought in by the British producer Alexander Korda to direct an adaption of Kipling's Toomai of the Elephants. However, "unhappy with the film's direction and progress, the producer finally replaced Flaherty with his brother Zoltan Korda, and Elephant Boy (1937) was completed at a studio in England" (ODNB).
