"Frank Buck's Jungle Cavalcade" is nearly a 100% compilation film that consists of footage from three previous Frank Buck expedition films; "Bring 'em Back Alive," "Wild Cargo," and "Fang and Claw." Unlike most compilation films from major studios (and there aren't a whole lot of them to start with), RKO made no attempt to keep the viewing audience from being aware of that they were watching nearly 100% archive footage. They sniped every ad and poster with "From - "BRING 'EM BACK ALIVE" - "WILD CARGO" and "FANG AND CLAW", in addition to crediting Clyde Elliott as the director of the "Bring "em Back Alive" sequences and Armand Denis as the director of the "Wild Cargo" sequences...on all of the advertising and the film. They also used such taglines as..."3 in 1 THRILLER! Streamlining the Mightiest Scenes from ALL His Greatest Pictures..." Written by

A thundering stampede of scorching action in a white-fang drama of the wilds with the man who stalks the animal kings and dethrones them with matchless courage and an indomitable will (original print ad) See more »
I saw this a long time ago on A&E when I was about 6 or so. I kind of liked it, especially the snake and tiger battle and the part where the monkeys the hunters trapped got their hands stuck in coconuts but wouldn't let go of the food inside, so they were stuck! The elephants were cool too. But I don't think anyone but me has actually seen this in 50 or so years, really...it was pretty good, I guess.
