If you like the Flash Gordon serials, you will very probably like this one too. Directed by Ford Beebe, the story line is great in the old tradition--the "Ivory Patrol", the "Jungle Cruiser" and of course the famous elephants' burial ground. Remember it now?
Acting is so-so, there's plenty of stock footage of Africa, and some of the locations will remind you of the old Commando Cody serials. Nevertheless the story moves well and there is not a lot of fist fighting which tends to detract from many of the serials of this period.
Heartily recommended for those who like this genre.
