This is a segment from the film Life with an Indian Prince. In 1939 two young Americans traveled to India to experience the falconry practices of Indian royalty and to photograph and film wildlife for National Geographic. In addition to hunting with birds of prey, members of the royal party used to hunt with cheetahs. This sport and way of life has disappeared into history. This rare footage is quite unique, and most probably the only of its kind.
