It's a Jungle Out There
18 June 2012 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Hoping to reconcile with her estranged husband, beautiful Rose Hobart (as Linda) travels deep into the treacherous jungles of Borneo. She finds boozy Charles Bickford (as Allan "Clark" Allan Randolph) is the "court physician" for tribal leader George Renavent (as Hashim). There are snakes, crocodiles, leopards, tigers and other dangerous animals to frighten Ms. Hobart. She is rejected by her husband, sadly; but, as the only "white woman" in the area, desired sexually by natives. Being leader, Mr. Renavent thinks he deserves the pretty prize, but Mr. Bickford might reconsider. As if that wasn't enough, there is a volcano threatening everyone. The man-eating crocodiles and rousing ending must have been exciting for the time, and the film does have some atmosphere.

***** East of Borneo (8/1/31) George Melford ~ Rose Hobart, Charles Bickford, George Renavent, Lupita Tovar
