Jungle pulp junk

Dubbed dialog, artless lighting, and science-film acting weaken what is otherwise a terrible adventure movie. The muddled and repetitive story concerns a white hunter who goes to South America, where he meets pretty Morena, a colleague's daughter. A native comes to town and picks Morena to be the tribe's virgin sacrifice. He and his pals kill papa and drag her off, spurring the white hunter to rescue her.

Early on, we get a little bondage nudity (a surprise for 1959) and jaguar wrasslin'. An excessive cantina dance sequence gets in the way, altho I'm not sure of what... the worst dream-sequence effects ever? Most of the film is a pursuit thru the jungle... with lame booby traps (as usual, pythons stand in for venomous stakes) and a climactic death match of the sort that the original Star Trek was so fond of.

Filmed in color, the location shots look surprisingly good (as does the captive Morena), but are edited with badly-matched studio shots. The producers would have been better off just shooting stock footage to sell to more serious film-makers. The trailer for Tarzana: The Wild Girl had more thrills.
