Storyline

Frank Buck and his native crew hunt the jungles of the Far East to capture wild animals for American zoos. Buck first traps a 300-pound python, then a Bird of Paradise. Buck comes on a baby armor-plated rhinocerous as it is being attacked by a tiger. Buck shoots the tiger to save the baby rhino, then amputates its mangled ear. Returning to camp, they find a 24-foot python, which they shoot out of a tree and bag with a net. To snare monkeys, Buck sets up a huge net and lures them with food such as tapioca. Next, Buck snares a sixteen-foot crocodile and another python, which had bitten and encoiled itself around his helper Ali. Buck then enters a deep Malaysian jungle to seek a tiger. With the use of a cage and the help of natives, he finally captures it. Written by Anonymous

It's odd how certain images get so into the public mind that they become ridiculous in themselves. Here is the chubby-looking, pencil-mustachioed Frank Buck, strolling around the jungle in pith helmet and shorts, to order the natives in how to capture pythons, monkeys and tigers for zoos in the United States.

It sounds ridiculous, and if you watch carefully you will see some careful camera cheating to make things look more dangerous than they actually are -- it looks, for example, as if he captures a 20-foot python by throwing his jacket over it. Yet Buck did capture these wild animals and if there was a certain amount of cheating for the camera, well, it works. Which is all the justification one needs.
