Goofs

While the setting is supposed to be a village in an African jungle, the men in the village are Asian--the actors appear to be Filipino--and the women are either white or Hispanic, have carnations in their hair and wear sarongs, which are not worn in Africa but in Polynesia and other areas of the South Pacific.

User Reviews

Below average, even for a Jungle Jim movie.

With the exception of CAPTIVE GIRL, this may be the worst film in the entire "Jungle Jim" series. This film is below average even for a Jungle Jim movie, and the average was pretty low to begin with. The plot is a rehash of the previous film, JUNGLE JIM (1948); bad guys from the outside want to pillage a lost city in the jungle. The city is supposed to be in some far off remote region of Africa, but judging from the film, its about an hours walk from a populated port town. This film is loaded with all kinds of plot contrivances and elements that don't ring true, even for a Jungle Jim movie. The only thing of interest is the exciting ( and pretty bizarre) final confrontation with the bad guys.
