Christopher Powell is in Malaysia with his fiancée and her father, capturing wild animals. While out hunting, he is attacked by a tiger, and his native guides run away, leaving him for dead. But the tiger is the pet of Ulah, a beautiful young woman who grew up by herself in the jungle. She rescues Chris and takes him back to her cave, where she nurses him to health and falls in love with him. When he eventually returns to camp, she follows. The fiancée is jealous, and the natives don't like Ulah or her pet tiger either, all of which leads to a lot of trouble. Written by

This movie is the movie that launched Dorthy Lamour's career. Dorthy went on to star in a number of "Road To" movies with Bob Hope and Bing Crosby that were hugely popular. According to "The History of Paramount Pictures", "The Jungle Princess was a WHOPPING money maker for the studio". The picture also starred Ray Milland and Ray Mala. Ray Mala was billed only as "Mala". Mala was the star of MGM's 1933 Oscar winning picture "Eskimo/Mala The Magnificent". This picture is from the Golden Age of Hollywood. Well worth watching, this picture is an Old Hollywood favorite. I wish this movie would be released on DVD to make it easier for people to find. There is only one beginning of Hollywood...
