Storyline

Jungle guide David Marchand is kidnapped by a tribe of natives who want to sacrifice him to their white rhino god. Just as he's about to be killed, however, he is thrown backwards in time to a kingdom of brunette women and their blonde slaves. David rejects the advances of Queen Kari and sides with the blondes, which leads to him being imprisoned in the dungeon. Can David find some way of returning to his own time? And if he does, what will be awaiting him when he returns? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Incredibly silly entry from Hammer Studios.
8 November 2019 | by AlsExGalSee all my reviews

David (Latimer) is a guide to an African expedition. The fool he's working for shoots, but only injures a leopard. David goes to put the leopard out of its' misery, and unknowingly enters the land of The Sacred Great White Rhinoceros, which is guarded by fierce natives. They capture David, and their leader speaks English. He sentences David to death, while the others babble and wail nonsense (literally "ooga booga--listen for the phrase). David escapes, and wanders further into the Rhino's land. He is captured, this time by unfriendly women. You can guess the rest of the plot.

The only acting required is to keep a straight face throughout the silliness. Beswick succeeds admirably at this, and went on to better, more dignified roles with Hammer and AIP ( 1971's "Dr. Jekyll and Sister Hyde", 1974's "Seizure", etc.). Ronay succeeds. Latimer has a hard time keeping from smiling and in one instance, laughing.

The script is laughable. It goes from business-like British, to nonsense, to pseudo-Biblical talk among the second group that captures Michael. For those who've seen "Carry On: Up the Jungle" (1970), there are two scenes from PW satirized in that film.

The movie shows as much T and A as Hammer dared in the mid 60's. It doesn't take a Freudian to figure out what these women are worshiping. Could be appreciated on a "so bad it's good" scale.
