Trader Hornee is a 1970 sexploitation film written and produced by David F. Friedman and directed by Jonathan Lucas. This is an adult-oriented parody of the vintage safari movie Trader Horn (1931), which was first remade in 1934. This story was filmed yet again in 1973 as Trader Horn starring Rod Taylor.

In 1977, the Adult Film Association of America gave it a retroactive award of merit at its 1977 Erotica Awards as the movie considered to be the best adult film of 1966 to 1970.[1]


Detective Hamilton Hornee and his team organize an expedition into mysterious Africa to search for Algona, heiress to her father's fortune. Algona happens to have become a magnificent blonde elephant-riding, goddess worshiped by the frightened tribe of the Meshpokas.
