Trivia

This film is one of over 200 titles in the list of independent feature films made available for television presentation by Advance Television Pictures announced in Motion Picture Herald 4 April 1942. At this time, television broadcasting was in its infancy, almost totally curtailed by the advent of World War II, and would not continue to develop until 1945-46. Because of poor documentation (feature films were often not identified by title in conventional sources) no record has yet been found of its initial television broadcast. Its earliest documented telecast in the New York City area, according to modern research, occurred 30 August 1950 on WOR (Channel 9). See more »

Bungle in the Jungle
2 August 2009 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

"An eccentric millionaire with a fondness for the drink hires a famous African explorer to organize an expedition to the jungles of the Dark Continent. This strange expedition in search of animals to stock the millionaire's private zoo includes a German big game hunter and a London cabbie with his cab to transport the millionaire in the jungle. Once the expedition arrives and they begin their hunt, they find their efforts to capture any animals are being thwarted by a mysterious white jungle girl," according to the DVD sleeve's synopsis.

Cheap "jungle girl" fantasy, with beautiful and exotic Rochelle Hudson (as "The White Goddess") far too over-dressed (in a one-piece leopard suit) for today's tastes. The camera finds her legs lovingly, though these shots must have been sexier before the film hit the cutting room. Veteran "Biograph" player Harry Myers (as Amos P. Stitch) has a terrific role as the perpetually intoxicated sidekick for hero Walter Byron (as Jim Franklin). Out to see if elephants are afraid of mice, Mr. Myers' decently played drunk steals the show.

**** The Savage Girl (12/5/32) Harry Fraser ~ Walter Byron, Rochelle Hudson, Harry Myers
