Storyline

Sharkey, animal handler for the Maitland Circus, is jealous of the success of star animal trainer Clyde Beatty - murderously so, as he has once surreptitiously permitted a hungry lion to be prematurely freed in a cage with Clyde, who escapes being mauled by the skin of his teeth. Far different is his relationship to Ruth Robinson, who is madly in love with him. But just as Clyde is blind to Sharkey's treachery, so he seems dulled to Ruth's feelings for him. When her father, a sea captain, prepares to set sail, he obliges Ruth to come with him if she cannot get an honorable marriage proposal from Clyde; and he is too busy thinking about his animals to notice what she is saying...

Interesting, but not particularly exciting
21 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

Before I watched this film, I had never heard of Clyde Beatty. Upon watching it though, it quickly became obvious that Beatty was a professional lion (and other wild animal) tamer, and probably quite a famous one at that.

The reason for this is that this film really exists as an excuse for Beatty to do his stuff - a large part of the film is devoted to Beatty either taming animals such as lions, panthers, bears and tigers, or performing with them under the big top. The plot is secondary to this action, and is pretty standard for a 'jungle' type movie.

Having said that, I found 'The Lost Jungle' to be quite interesting, especially as a historical artifact: acts like Beatty's are seldom seen these days. All in all, I enjoyed watching it: a light movie which gives a glimpse into the past.
