Storyline

Quando arriva la notizia che i resti dell'aereo su cui viaggiava il figlio con la moglie e la figlioletta sono stati ritrovati in Kenya, Sir Donovan organizza subito una spedizione nel tentativo di ritrovare la nipote di cui non sono stati trovati i resti. Glen Shipper è a capo di questa spedizione dietro ricompensa di 100.000 dollari e in un villaggio viene a sapere che una donna bianca chiamata Tarzana (donna misteriosa in lingua bantù - sic) vive in una zona pericolosa controllata dai ribelli. Subito si parte per quella zona. Ma della spedizione fa parte qualcuno a cui non dispiacerebbe che la nipote ed erede di Sir Donovan scomparisse per sempre... Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

Topless Jungle Girl: The Movie
12 June 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

African expedition finds wild white girl living with animals on a backlot jungle set. Although not reflected in the IMDB credits, the titular (and then some) role is played by Femi Benussi, at her most gorgeous. There are bad guys and good guys on the expedition, but the principal point of the film is summed up in the observation that Femi spends about 99% of her screen time wearing nothing but a little junglekini thong bottom. (She looks terrific, traveling the jungle on elephantback.) At one point she finds some of the expedition's castoff junk, including discarded clothing, and slips into a jacket she's found in the debris. Her pet chimp eyes her up and down, then shakes his head "no" and she slips right back out of the jacket. (This seems to be conclusive proof that the Darwinian theory is, after all, correct.)

One of numerous topless jungle girl movies emanating from Europe in the late 1960s and 1970s, this is par for the genre. This was not released in the US till about 1976, and then with partly anglicized credits which omitted Femi altogether. The only US video print I have seen, on the Sinister Cinema label, is a bit scratchy but watchable. Femi is worth a wow! in this. (So now where can I find a copy of AMAZONS FOR TWO ADVENTURERS, with peachy Marie Ekorre in a 1970s German version of this perennial favorite theme among voyeurs?)
