    Several characters including: Charles Bickford, Elizabeth Young, Frank Albertson, Leslie Fenton, Sig Rumann and Jay Gilbuena survive a South Seas tramp steamer ship accident...Sound familiar?...The difference is that Sig Rumann's BIG CATS were also on the ship and they make it to the island as well...At 72 minutes this programmer holds your interest as you are wondering who will survive and who will be the main course for the hungry carnivores...Charles Bickford leads the cast as a forceful but likable fugitive on the run...The rest of the cast follows his lead with animal trainer Sig Rumann losing his grip on reality, diabolical opportunist Leslie Fenton and the terrified young lovers Elizabeth Young and Jack Albertson working up a sweat and not sure if Bickford is trustworthy or not...Worth mentioning that Eliazbeth Young looked a lot like the brunette Joan Bennett of several years later...EAST OF JAVA was directed by George Melford (who also helmed the alternate Spanish version of DRACULA)...Melford does a good job here and keeps things moving and hopefully more of his work will turn up on TCM...Lastly, the film was produced by Paul Kohner the producer of the Spanish version of DRACULA and who many felt would run the studio after Carl Laemmle Sr stepped down...
