This version of the Perils of Pauline (recognizable from the others by it's song "Where are you my pretty Pauline...I love you my pretty Pauline) follows the story of Pauline from her being found on the doorstep of the orphanage to being a tutor to a crazy 12 year old prince in India who wants to make her the start of his harem, on to being frozen in a block of ice, traveling through the jungle where both a gorilla and a big game hunter fall in love with her, almost getting married, various other hijinks, and finally at the end in a boat with the love of her life. Throughout it all she is constantly in peril from one thing or another, crocodiles, hippos, car accidents, drowning, you name it. Even at the very end the crazed big game hunter is in a scuba suit sneaking up under the boat and drilling a hole in its hull. It has been about 12 years since I've seen this movie so I've forgotten a fair bit, but I think you get the idea.
I would give just about anything if someone could get me a copy of this on DVD or VCR. As far as I know if never came out on DVD or VCR and I have only found it one time years and years ago on TV and I only found it as it was going off. If ANYONE knows when it might come on etc please notify me because it is my favorite movie from when I was a child.
I think there are too many unwholesome movies and kids today don't understand what we as children use to see at the 10 cent movies during the summer but this movie was silly, corny, good fun entertainment. I loved this movie, I talk about it to my sons all the time and they think, yeah sure there was a movie about someone being frozen in order to wait for someone else to marry them. What planet was I born on? Great Great Movie.
