Universal adventure film
30 December 1998 | by Drifter-7See all my reviews

Silly dialogue and some unpleasant stereotypes almost sink this one from Universal's Carl Laemmle period. Still some good action sequences and a really good musical score mostly penned by Franz Waxman. Music reused most notably in "Tim Tyler's Luck" (1937) and "The Crime of Dr. Hallet" (1938). Charles Bickford was hurt badly after wrestling with some unhappy lions in the finale. Worth a look if you can find it!
