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.
The 1967 movie version of "Pauline" was originally developed to be released as a TV series and is in fact, the compilation of the pilot and subsequent 2nd and 3rd episodes. Unfortunately the first few episodes were considered a complete flop and were unable to garner any interest from any sponsor or network of the day. In order to salvage what they could, the first 3 episodes were combined by Universal Pictures into a theatrical film release. See more »
I was a military dependent in Rota Spain during most of the 60's, There were few if any televisions. I myself did not see a TV for 6 years. Imagine a kids life with no television. The movie theater was truly magic. I last saw this movie in 1967, and have been searching for it for the last 20+ years. Countless searches for this on the internet has only turned up others searching for it, but never anyone finding it. Well, Its finally here, on ELOVE channel encore love channel 23 mar 1020 am and 28 march 820 am. I'm looking forward to seeing some of this magic from the past. I don't know about the critics but this former 7-8 year old kid has had this film on his mind for the last 39 years.. THANK YOU ENCORE CHANNEL!! Some other movies i'd like to see again from that era include: John Goldfarb please come home, Lt Robinson Crusoe USN, The Haleluja Trail, and i think The Jungle Book played that tour too. It seems as time goes on, we're losing a few gems from the past.. it's getting really hard to find showings for some of these movies! (robinson Crusoe, perils of Pauline) From 39 year old memory of some young kid i give this one a 10! I'm gonna sit my kids down to watch this one, except they're a few years older than I was!
