Teenaged Mowgli, who was raised by wolves, appears in a village in India and is adopted by Messua. Mowgli learns human language and some human ways quickly, though keeping jungle ideas. Influential Merchant Buldeo is bigoted against 'beasts' including Mowgli; not so Buldeo's pretty daughter, whom Mowgli takes on a jungle tour where they find a treasure, setting the evil of human greed in motion.

The Jungle Book was the first film for which original soundtrack recordings were issued. Previously, when record companies released music from a film, they had insisted on re-recording the music in their own studios with their own equipment. The "Jungle Book" records were taken from the same recordings used for the film's soundtrack, and their commercial success paved the way for more original-soundtrack albums. See more »

I found the film simple and enchanting. maybe its because i came across the film as a child, i cant remember, films are so over the top nowadays its a pleasure to go back to simple things although an Indian speaking perfect English is incredible! Haha There was so much more effort put into the films of those days Today everything gets run through a computer for amazing effects but fake. The jungle book actions are all real (so far as i know from what i see) They did their own stunts ;) Anyone who moans about it really is a sourpuss.
