(1934) Joan Lowell. A riotously bad jungle docu-drama. Lowell, a self-styled adventuress, retells her "true" adventures in the wilds of Guatemala. Her overacting is a sight to see, especially in the climax where she is chased by boats of savage natives, encircled with fire! A puker. 16mm Written by
Foreword A year ago Joan Lowell returned from a trip to the vastnesses of Central America, with a tale of well-nigh incredible adventures. So lurid and exciting was the story of her exploits that she was persuaded to duplicate them - only this time with a motion picture camera. "ADVENTURE GIRL" is a re-enactment of Miss Lowell's fantastic journyings and depicts her experiences in this tropical land noted for it's bewildering equatorial beauty. See more »
The film includes a long, furious wrestling match between Joan Lowell and a mysterious Mayan princess. Although she is not credited in any source I can locate, I am quite certain that the Mayan princess is played by Ula Holt (New Adventures of Tarzan (1935) AKA Tarzan and the Green Goddess (1938). If I am correct, I think this might be Ms. Holt's only other known screen credit. A second link with the Tarzan film is a grotesquely ornate stone arch which appears as the background of scenes near the end of each film. I think there must have been some connection between the two films.
