In India, a group of religious fanatics, the Sikkim rebels, capture an English lieutenant and the daughter of the Viceroy. The Sikkim belong to the deadly sect of the White Elephant, and are very cunning and dangerous. Lieutenant Dick Ramsey (played by Sean Flynn), captain of the lancers, engineers a scheme to save the two captives. After having been degraded and locked up in order to trick the rebels, he escapes, and makes his way into the jungle to find the mysterious temple. Along the way he meets Sandok and Prince Dahara, who both join Ramsey in unmasking the sect and saving the two captives. This film was made right after Lenzi's similar jungle film, "Sandokan, I Tigre della Malesia," so it contains many similar locales and actors. Lenzi returned to the jungle the following year to make three more films! Despite the original title, "Sandokan, I maciste della Giungla," this is not a Sandokan film. Nevertheless, this is a really fantastic adventure, with lots of steamy jungle footage, exotic locales, and enough action to make it well worth the watch.
