In the 12th of the "Jungle Jim" series from Sam Katzman's production unit at Columbia, Jim (Johnny Weissmuller) is assigned to accompany a government agent into the interior to get the native's approval for copper mining. Unknown to Jim, Arco (Robert C. Foulk), also wants approval but for oil, not copper. Arco and his henchies make a series of raids on the villages which he is able to blame on Jungle Jim.

Not the worst Sam Katzman's stuff

I can bare that kind of Sam Katzman's production, no more than 70 minutes length at the most. A rather amusing time waster that you may forget one hour after the viewing. Many stock shot - footage material - unconvincing, and I would say laughable, acting and of course a tepid directing. But who would ask more for this grade Z stuff made for the big screen. Yes, I can stand this Sam Katzman's prod piece of work, but certainly not his serials, all made for Columbia Pictures in the late forties and till the late fifties. Those serials were a real killing, even for the most hard boiled serial fan - I am not, I admit, except for Republic ones. A million miles away from Columbia serials.

This film made entirely in studios - who would expect locations - I repeat, is lightly better than the Bomba films, but far worse than the Tarzan features. I won't class it among the Jungle Jim series. All seem the same for me. I won't tell if it is the best JJ ever or the second or the worst, the last in the best JJ of the whole series.

If you are a fan or just a time killer, don't hesitate.
