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.

Low budget, formulaic - and lots of fun, especially for the 'camp' fans. Unlike a lot of 'camp' film 'classics,' there's nothing offensive about this one, which may explain its low rating, as camp fans sometimes demand the tasteless and forget what entertainment used to be about.
It's not stupid, its just a light working class Tarzan-type pic with humor, '40s style knockabout action, a good guy finding redemption in the arms of a beautiful and innocent young woman, a nasty villain, and babes. The 'natives' are not treated with any racist derision, by the way, which makes the whole outing harmless fun 'for the whole family.' Defintitely the type of film you would like to see on late night TV just before hitting the sack.
