Storyline

After Jungle Jim finds an American army captain's dog tags among the remains of a dead pygmy, he joins a U.S. military investigation not only to find the missing soldier, Captain Ann Kingsley, but also to look into a recently discovered kind of rope that will not burn or break. The pygmy had been killed by the Bush Devil cult but little is known of them. In fact, others are after the plant used to make this indestructible rope fiber and it's up to Jungle Jim to stop them. He will face crocodiles, stampeding elephants and a gorilla along the way. Written by garykmcd

Jungle Jim is the man!!
8 June 2004 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

I can't believe how much fun Jungle Jim movies really are! I stayed up very late to watch this one and it's a real gem! Anything with... Johnny Weissmuller, Billy Curtis (wearing a black long wig), jungle settings, tons of stock footage, Johnny fighting a rubber crocodile and a guy in a gorilla suit (is that Crash Corrigan? Looks like his suit.)...is well worth it. This is one that should not be missed! Too bad Johnny only made 16 Jungle Jims.
