Much stock footage is used from Universal Picture East of Java (1935) and others. Much familiar stock Universal music is also used. The plot element (including stock footage) of the shipwreck, wild animals (including lions) escaping onto the island, the survivors trying to protect themselves from the animals, with some being killed by the big cats, is taken from East of Java (1935). Actor Clarence Muse even appears in these scenes in both movies, and meeting the same fate in both. See more »
A film with a lot of action and a tongue-in-cheek script. Stock footage
"East of Java" and "East of Borneo" is used effectively. Even some of the
background music is borrowed from such flicks as "Bombay Mail" and "Son of
Frankenstein". A treat for old-time adventure film fans !
