"Slave Girl," as played by Midori, is Kalani, a pretty Matoba girl saved from drowning by Gilligan, her native customs demanding that she remain his slave for life. The other castaways offer bids for her services but she refuses to serve anyone else but Gilligan. Kalani insists on doing all of Gilligan's chores until he finally asks the Professor what can be done. The answer is not a healthy one, a duel to the death, basically Gilligan's! Mr. Howell makes an offer he can't refuse, the staged result putting Kalani in the victor's employ, only for a new challenger appearing in fellow Matoba warrior Ugundi (Michael Forest), who seeks to claim Kalani for himself. A chance remark gives the Professor the idea to put Gilligan into a cataleptic state that will simulate death, which works so well that Ugundi insists on a Matoba funeral, which requires the corpse to be set aflame! A former member of the Roger Corman stock company, Michael Forest would be best remembered as the god Apollo in STAR TREK's "Who Mourns for Adonais?"
