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.

Fast moving entertainment movie
3 September 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film was made for entertainment purposes only and what's wrong with that? Its OK to be entertained and that is what "Blonde Savage" does.

It starts out as a good macho jungle adventure as two soldier-of-fortune pilots get embroiled with a millionaire, his sexy wife (and I mean Veda Ann Borg is all woman and is terrific in her role) and a good adventure plot. The well-made macho adventure revs up and I was really into it.

Then, all of a sudden a blonde teenage chick is thrust into the film and it totally changes. I knew to expect her (the blonde savage) but it was such a sudden jolt that I had to laugh as I was taken aback- its a different movie now! I immediately wondered "where did she get that perfect Max Factor makeup out there in the jungle?" This girl is literally a teenager (about 18 yr old), and towering 35-ish tough guy Leif Erickson is going around the jungle with her. Gale Sherwood is really beautiful, lively and in no way slows down the film, and her singing voice is terrific too. Yes, the savage sings!

So view this fun film if you get a chance and just go with it, including the sudden jolt when the incongruous Savage appears.

Veda Ann Borg will impress you and she is memorable as she plots, connives and flirts. And then the blonde goddess shows up, invigorating this film up into goofy fun status for me.
