An expedition discovers blonde 16 year-old Liane venerated by the native tribe in the African jungle and returns her to Hamburg where she is welcomed by her grandfather, ship tycoon Von Amelongen. His nephew Schoening, present head of the firm and prospective heir, tries all to stop his uncle from acknowledging her, including perjury, destruction of evidence, and finally resorting to murder. He dies in an accident driving his car into the river in his flight from the police. There is a subplot around a love quadrangle centered around Thoren, who is secretly loved by biologist Jacqueline who is in turn courted by Hungarian Tibor. Thoren plays paternal protector to Liane before succumbing to her youthful charm and returning with her to the jungle. Written by Michael Jurich <jurich@rummelplatz.uni-mannheim.de>

rated G is Australia, kiddies!
10 November 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

LIANE JUNGLE GODDESS was released for the school holidays in Sydney Australia in January 1959 and rated G: as in FOR GENERAL EXHIBITION.. haha..it played for 3 weeks in the glorious starry ceiling CAPITOL theatre all 2337 seats, now the home of THE LION KING on stage. The ads for the first two weeks escaped press censorship and had the dear 17 babe NUDE on a rope, obviously swinging from tree to tree. Were'nt we liberated and having a laugh all those years ago. A later ad featured Liane, same pose, and in a drawn on polka dot bikini which means somebody complained. but who cares, by then the kids were back at school and The Capitol was running a double of...wait for it.. THE MUGGER + THE SNORKEL..... a molesters double that ran one ghastly week. Those were the days.....
