Storyline

While searching the South Pacific for a missing aviator, Bob Mitchell and Jimmy Wallace are caught in a typhoon and crack up on an island, escaping unharmed with the aid of Tura, a beautiful jungle girl who is the only inhabitant of the island and is believed a goddess by the natives of the adjoining islands. The three are about to leave the island on a make-shift raft when a gang of savage tribesman land, headed by Kuasa, a half-mad potentate who informs them that all whites are his mortal enemies because an Englishwoman once spurned his love and he got his revenge by stealing her daughter, who is Tura. He had set her up as a goddess but she must now pay for befriending the hated white men by being sacrificed to the crocodiles in an underground temple. An earthquake rocks the island and destroys Kuasa and his band. Bob, Jimmy and Tura find a party of rescuers waiting on the beach, headed by aviation company president J.C. Martin and his daughter Eleanor, Bob's fiancée. It soon ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

The Sarong Girl does it again!
7 August 2004 | by (Adelaide Australia) – See all my reviews

How well I remember first seeing this movie over 60 years ago, and the climatic scene of the volcanic eruption and the crocodile invasion has stuck with me ever since. It was Dorothy Lamour's third movie in which she spends all her time in a sarong, and does it very well - the second time they put Ray Milland with her also!. The story is fairly hackneyed, but the film looks great in Technicolor, and the visual effects for 1938 are quite good. I enjoyed the principals, along with the supporting cast of Lynne Overman (who apparently had to be in every epic produced by Paramount) , and J. Carrol Naish as the required villain who kidnapped Dorothy as a child, and of course, gets his come-uppance in a spectacular way. A good way to spend and hour and a half, but cannot be taken seriously.
