This was the first picture in the "Jungle Jim" series, which was produced by Sam Katzman for release by Columbia. The series, based on the comic strip "Jungle Jim," starred Johnny Weissmuller as Jungle Jim and consisted of sixteen films spanning a period from 1948 to 1955. In 1954, Columbia turned over its Jungle Jim rights to its television subsidiary, and in the last three films of the series Weissmuller's character is named "Johnny Weissmuller" instead of Jungle Jim. Devil Goddess (1955) was the last entry in the series, as well as being Weissmuller's last feature film.
