Enjoyable....but those are American alligators.
3 June 2017 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Sabu stars as 'Ramdar'...a young man who has a real way with animals. He takes it upon himself to protect the animals in the Indian jungle but when Prince Gopal (Turhan Bey) and his entourage arrive, Ramdar is worried for the animals. After all, Gopal has little regard for the creatures so Ramdar decides to kidnap Princess Tara (Gail Russell) and promises to return her if Gopal leaves the animals alone. But Gopal is in many ways like Gaston from "Beauty and the Beast"...he's just a jerk at heart. What's next?

While the film was made in sound stages, it used matte paintings quite well to create the jungle look. However, as I mentioned in the summary, there is an American alligator in one crucial scene. I am sure most folks won't notice--I live in a part of the country where they are common. Plus, they aren't as likely to hurt anyone as a crocodile. Overall, enjoyable and worth your time.
