Storyline

Dr. John Meredith has been driven from civilization by the criminal activities of his twin brother Bradley Meredith. With his infant daughter, he settles in the African jungle, where his ability to cure the native ills has resulted in his virtual control of the Masamba tribes, who possess vast diamond mines coveted by a gang of crooks. They use Shamba, a witch doctor jealous of Dr. Meredith's influence over the tribe, to further their schemes. They lure Dr. Meredith away from the jungle, and he is murdered by "Slick" Latimer. The natives believe that a sacred amulet is the secret of Dr. Meredith's power, and Shamba attempts to kill Nyoka, Meredith's now-grown-up daughter, to obtain the amulet (which actually contains the secret to the entrance of the Caves of Nakros). Jack Stanton rescues her and assists her in her efforts to recover the amulet. Latimer works with Shamba, and with Bradley Meredith, who poses as his murdered-brother so successfully that even Nyoka does not realize the ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Who needs Tarzan when you've got a girl like this?
23 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This serial has very little to do with the Edgar Rice Burroughs novel "Jungle Girl," on which it is supposedly based. (The book was set in Cambodia, and the heroine was Asian, while the film is about a white girl in Africa.) But the movie does show that a good jungle picture doesn't need a man. Frances Gifford as Nyoka is both fetching and daring at the same time. There's something about the way she swings on those vines that makes you want to go climb a tree yourself. (I've read that the swinger was actually a stuntman in a wig, but I choose not to believe it.) The jungle theme music is better than anything in a Tarzan film. As Gifford fans know, she went on to play a Jane substitute in "Tarzan Triumphs," but it's plain she should have been Jane.
