Corny plot is bad enough, but the African "natives" are an insult.
We love Cheese
We love cheese, especially Weismiller cheese. Wonderful with bacon and eggs on a saturday morning. Thanks Ted, Ben and everyone at TCM!
Jungle Jim in the Forbidden Land (1952)
- James Higgins
31/100. This is the eighth entry in the Jungle Jim series, and unfortunately not the last. They were profitable at the time, mainly because they had minuscule budgets. As with most in the series, the plot is lame and stupid. This time he gets entangled with a greedy and evil ivory hunter. That's not all folks, he also has to grapple with a "giant man," in bad make up, a phony looking costume and a desperate need for a dentist. As with all in the films in the series, a lot of obvious stock footage is used, and a menagerie of animals that in reality do not co-exist anywhere in the universe. The acting is, as expected, poor, the art direction painfully obvious. The film looks as though it took perhaps a week to film.
Jungle Jim in the Forbidden Land
I would love to see TCM do a Johnny Weismiller Marathon with all of the Tarzan Movies and all of the Jungle Jim Movies, especially Jungle Jim in the Forbidden Land. These are treasures of yesteryear when Hollywood was really entertainment !
