Storyline

Diamond mine owner Mark Harper (Douglass Dumbrille) hires pilot Steve Blake (Leif Erickson) and his pal Hoppy Owens (Frank Jenks)to search for a hidden jungle village from which the natives have made trouble for his mine operations. They crash near the village and discover that Meelah (Gale Sherwood), a white girl brought up by the natives after her parents had been killed for their property by Harper, is the head of the village. Returning to the mine, Harper, already suspicious of what they may have learned and jealous of the attention his wife, Connie Harper (Veda Ann Borg), is paying to Steve, has them jailed, while he leads an expedition against the village and Meelah.

Jungle action adventure, old school
8 March 2008 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

Funny opening sequence: Steve Blake (Leif Erickson) enters the office of a lawyer and says: "You may have to defend me in a murder case." - "Have you killed someone?" asks the lawyer. - "Not yet!" replies Blake, and begins to explain what made him consider that final option. "Blonde Savage" is a B movie about yet another girl lost in the wilderness, but in true "Sheena" style became a goddess to the natives. One little difference between other movies and this one is that Blake tells almost the whole story as a flashback, thus providing the opportunity to give ironic comment on everything. Gale Sherwood plays Meelah, the jungle girl Blake refers to as "that blonde package of TNT". Maybe even better is the role of Veda Ann Borg as Connie Harper, the villain's wife who has a difficult decision to make: shall she keep her mouth shut and stick with her husband, or would it be better to leave him and tell the truth? Well, "Blonde Savage" is good old action adventure cinema of the kind they don't make anymore, maybe not very original but definitely enjoyable.
