A truly astonishing example of inept film-making...
27 July 2003 | by ccmiller1492See all my reviews

Most of the film consists of actors walking around or standing around in fake jungle intercut with endless travelogue footage and tedious narration. The leading lady resembles a bizarre parody of Jane Russell in "The Outlaw", with her main scene being a rather odd clumsy dance with a "shrunken head." The high point of the film occurs near the end when two actors in very motheaten ape suits (supposed to be bull gorillas) fight over the girl. In the only action scene of any interest, the "gorillas" then turn on the hero (Allan Nixon) and his brother, stomping and tearing them to death .The woman Velda goes off with the simians and apparently lives happily ever after with the film abruptly ended. Not a moment too soon for any viewer left awake.
