The record of an expedition deep into the Malayan jungle.
In the mid-30s a number of these exploitation expedition movies were made. In one of them, which also featured Lowell Thomas who went onto TV fame, a party member gets eaten by a lion and the narrator says, Oh too bad.
This one shows plenty of lions running in ways that make no sense and natives chucking spears to kill them. It's not a well made movie but there is a great scene where a tiger climbs way up a tree after a cameraman.
They stage a python attack with a native. Not really sure the snake was real. To be honest, a lot of this film looks like it was made in a zoo! The tiger growling never ceases and they must kill 10 of them.Leopards, lions, tigers, you name it, are all killed with one shot,They don't seem to care much when the beasts go after the natives, but when the white man gets in trouble, bullets fly.
A white gibbon is practically drawn and quartered. This is a crazy movie that you can't keep your eyes off.
