The film states that it is "an official and authentic motion picture record of the Van Beuren-Buck Malayan jungle expedition." However, some of the action takes place in Ceylon and India. For the New York opening, Frank Buck made personal appearances after each showing.
In his autobiography, Frank Buck explains how they got the extraordinary footage of the python-leopard battle. He had the natives beat drums to get the leopard into an open field where a python had been spotted. After a two-day wait, they finally met, and the cameramen were there to film them.
