Seen on Pittsburgh's Chiller Theater in 1967
18 January 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

1944's "The Jungle Captive" concluded Universal's Paula Dupree trilogy, a cut above the second, "Jungle Woman," neither as good as "Captive Wild Woman." Of the three, only "Jungle Woman" was not included in the SON OF SHOCK television package issued in the late 50s; "The Jungle Captive" made two appearances on Pittsburgh's Chiller Theater- Apr 15 1967 (following 1957's "I Was a Teenage Frankenstein") and Sept 25 1976 (following 1969's "The Blood Rose"). Unencumbered by the stock animal footage that cluttered up the others, this is a more straightforward mad scientist endeavor, with Otto Kruger as pathologist Stendahl, whose assistant, billed in the ads as 'Moloch the Brute,' is played by Rondo Hatton, still a year away from his famous Creeper series (both produced by Ben Pivar). With Acquanetta having departed Universal, the role of Paula Dupree now went to unknown actress Vicky Lane, who had an even shorter career than her predecessor, having completed just one featured role before this, which ended up her final film. At least The Ape Woman (now mute again, unlike in "Jungle Woman") gets to walk around in full bestial Jack Pierce makeup, if only briefly (the lovely Vicky also gets a more skimpy wardrobe than Acquanetta, who only wore hers for the posters). No other characters from the first two entries return, though the doctors played by John Carradine and J. Carrol Naish both get a mention.
