Storyline

Christopher Powell is in Malaysia with his fiancée and her father, capturing wild animals. While out hunting, he is attacked by a tiger, and his native guides run away, leaving him for dead. But the tiger is the pet of Ulah, a beautiful young woman who grew up by herself in the jungle. She rescues Chris and takes him back to her cave, where she nurses him to health and falls in love with him. When he eventually returns to camp, she follows. The fiancée is jealous, and the natives don't like Ulah or her pet tiger either, all of which leads to a lot of trouble. Written by John Oswalt <jao@jao.com>

Ray Milland and Dorothy Lamour
6 August 2014 | by Martha WilcoxSee all my reviews

Dorothy Lamour is quite charming in this film playing an indigenous woman who falls in love with Ray Milland in the jungle after saving his life. He displays the sort of childlike naivety that you would find in a woman from the Pacific Islands who is enchanted by a Western man. I'm not too sure if I believe it in the context of Malaysia, but perhaps it's possible in 1935.

I'm not particularly a Lamour fan and I never thought she was quite pretty in her films. However, she is charming in this film and quite endearing.

In terms of the story and the characters, it didn't particularly impress me as I wasn't engaged at any level. It's just Lamour's performance and that love-sick puppy expression in her eyes when she looks at Milland that makes this film bearable.
