  • A Great View of the 1930's Malayan jungle

    Away with your timorous and tremulous fears and join us, machete in hand, hiking the jungle. Come along and visit the natives, and see wild and powerful animals in their natural habitat as they would have lived in the late nineteen twenties and early nineteen thirties. The animals are fierce and untamed and the men are quick to jump when the giant python snaps its jaws, or when the tiger outwits the trappers and leaps completely over the pit covered with brush and leaves.Our hero, dressed in the mandatory white safari outfit, orchestrates the capture of different animals and often lends a hand here and there showing that he not entirely as soft as he looks. The movie highlights a giant "royal" python that spends its days challenging the other jungle animals for dominance, and indeed the constrictor makes moves that would be the envy of any modern wrestler, taking even the largest animals down for the count and making them all cry "Uncle" in their effort to escape the snake's perilous and inexorable coils.(There's a reason for wearing white in the jungles of the world, as told by none other than Dr. Albert Schweitzer, the doctor that ran a medical missionary clinic in Africa. In one of his books describing his work he said that the tsetse fly and other dangerous biting insects will not land on white because the bugs are then outlined against the clothing and can be seen and swatted - a lost tip on insect avoidance from our forefathers.)The animals and men live in perilous jungle surroundings, so it is fortunate that the trappers capture the giant python before he demands another rematch and crushes the wind from the tiger we've been following on camera. Soon the python has been beaten, not by brute strength but by the wiles and guile of our intrepid trappers. The "best boy" raises the python's head and quick as a flash the hunt-master has looped a strong rope over the snake's head.Historically accurate or not, this is a great movie!

  • Reprensible movie

    Contains footage of animals being tortured and killed. This may have been acceptable in 1932 but we are better than that now.
