Storyline

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 John Oswalt <jao@jao.com>

The Jungle Princess
28 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Absurd yes. Enjoyable, profoundly. This was a movie drawn on Hollywood's fascination with all things south. The Pacific and Latin America. The story was unbelievable but for those of us who never saw a believable story out of Hollywood it was just as real as a Gene Autry western. We enjoyed all genres and that meant Gene Autry and Dorothy Lamour equally. There were Frank Buck documentaries (so-called) that were hokier than anything the B movies presented and those too were very popular. Perhaps we should only judge those pictures in the context of the times they were presented. I would love to see The Jungle Princess again and revel in Ray Milland's revelation on the Johnny Carson show what he did in a swimming scene with Dorothy.
