Trivia

Sam J. Jones' bare-chested torture, in which he's spreadeagled beneath a cluster of dangling, about-to-drop spears, may have been inspired by a similar ordeal inflicted on Mark Forest in the 1963 movie, Goliath and the Sins of Babylon (1963). See more »

Funny, archly written throwback comedy in the Carry On style.
15 April 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Anybody unfamiliar with British comic strips of the 40s and 50s might find this movie trite and contrived, but that was the way the strips played. Lost cities, buried treasure, wicked Eurotrash countesses, etc. etc., all of the usual comic strip clichés are here. The movie's creators worked hard and generally succeeded in capturing the original strip's silly tone and obvious contrivances - Jane loses her dress about every other scene and has to cavort about in embarrassment in her lingerie, and her hunky Jungle Jack boyfriend gets hit on the head or chained to a wall and needs rescuing by his distaff partner almost as often. The cast play the silly lines and sight gags with appropriately straight faces, and the result is a fairly obvious but entertaining comedy of an older fashion, rather like a vintage Carry On movie but in color.
