Tiring movie serial...
11 March 2010 | by (Kingsport, TN) – See all my reviews

The Jungle Jim series is getting a bit tiring at this point. This plot is just a bit ridiculous. A man, Onslow Stevens, hires a couple of men, to pose as gorillas (in really phony looking gorilla suits), to frighten the local natives from going near the site where there is a buried treasure left my the Nazi's. What the Nazi's were doing in the middle of the jungle is a mystery to this day. Of course Johnny Weismuller does what he can to foil the plot. Trudy Marshall and Suzanne Dalbert co star. Directed by William Berke. This was the fourth in the series. Outside of zoo's, I'd like to know where on this planet, panthers, lions, monkeys, elephants, lions and jaguars co-exist. Laughably bad at times.
