At one point Jungle Jim mentions to Inspector Bernard that in just a few more miles they'll hit the coast just below Nairobi. Nairobi is located in the highlands of southern Kenya, which is bordered on the south by the country of Tanzania, known as Tanganyika when the movie was made. See more »
If you are familiar with the Johnny Weismuller Tarzan films then you'll know what to expect from a Jungle Jim film. It's essentially the same as Tarzan but with Weismuller this time donning clothes.
There is plenty of stock footage used, much like the earlier Tarzan adventures, which do add a certain charm to the film. Jungle Jim does pretty much what Tarzan did, fight some wild animals and help stop the greedy bad guys.
This is a pretty standard adventure film which doesn't look like it was made on much of a budget. However there is enough going on to keep your interest until the predictable finale.
If you are already not a fan of these films then this is unlikely to interest you but for Weismuller fans this is a pleasant enough way to pass the time.
