Contains footage of 1943's Captive Wild Woman that introduced the ape-woman. Retells that story through court proceeding flashbacks. See more »
In one scene, Dr. Fletcher's daughter, Joan (Lois Collier) is sitting alone in the driver's
seat of her fiance's car talking to Paula Dupree.
The scene was shot from the front, and it's obvious that there is no glass on her side of the split windshield. See more »
Dr. Fletcher, as long as you have elected to take the stand at this inquest, I again urge you to give us more information regarding the circumstances surrounding the death of the deceased. You are being of no help to us by your continued silence.

Universal Pictures must have had some contract commitments they were trying to fill or the budget was real tight. What I can't believe is that there was much of a demand for a sequel to Captive Wild Women which introduced us to Paula the Ape woman who went from beautiful Acquanetta to a guy in a gorilla suit.
We thought she was done for at the end of Captive Wild Women, but she's back now and living at J. Carrol Naish's asylum. She doesn't revert to being an ape any more, but Acquanetta is still a Jungle Woman and reverts to animal behavior when someone poaches on what she stakes out.
A lot of the same cast members of the previous film testify at a coroner's inquest presided over by a most embarrassed Samuel S. Hinds and Douglass Dumbrille. Now Acquanetta sets her jealous eyes once all the flashbacks are over which account for about half the film on poor Lois Collier who has a man the Jungle Woman wants.
Thank God Universal didn't inflict a third film on the movie-going public.
