Oh, Dad, this is getting monotonous! Every year we do the same thing. We go to Saratoga, we go to Newport, then we come to Glencove for the yacht races.
Well, I always win.

"An African expedition searching for the 'City of the Dead' finds them facing many perils along the way. Natives, wild animals, and deadly diseases are met by the explorers as they look for the lost city and a long lost missionary. A doctor working on a cure for the jungle illness joins the expedition in the hopes their combined forces can meet the challenges they face," according to the DVD sleeve's synopsis.
Director Harry Fraser shows some humor by panning busty Sheila Darcy (as Betty Graham) just before she coincidently utters her line, "Two heads are better than one." This film (also known as "Drums of Africa") intercuts "stock" animal/jungle scenes unconvincingly with hunky jungle doctor Buster Crabbe (as Robert "Junga" Hammond) and the visiting expedition. Sub-standard Saturday matinée stuffing.
** Jungle Man (9/19/41) Harry Fraser ~ Buster Crabbe, Sheila Darcy, Charles Middleton
