Big game hunter Tom (Don C.Harvey) has come to the African jungle to search for a boy who has gone lost there 15 years ago - and for some reason, he brings a man-eating tiger from India in a cage with him. At the trading post, trader Kirk (Forrest Taylor) tells him there is no such thing as a jungle boy, but somehow Tom has a hunch the trader is lying ... and indeed, the trader and his adopted daughter Nita (Alyce Lewis) are actually friends with the jungle boy, Tawa (Robert Cabal).

Soon enough, Tawa, who speaks perfect English with only the hint of an accent, shows interest in the white man, and eventually they meet. Tom, his mind set on the money he has been offered if he brings the boy back to civilisation, tries to persuade Tawa to go back to civilisation with him ... but instead, he is soon convinced by Tawa about the beauty of jungle life. Why, Tawa even persuades Tom to give up hunting.

But then, Tawa's chimps free the tiger from its cage (hell, there must have been a reason for Tom to carry a tiger around), and Tom wants to shoot the animal before it can do any harm. But Tawa, friend of the animals, forbids it, and tries to reason with the tiger ... but he has to look on helplessly as the tiger kills a native, a water buffalo, a gorilla and a boa constrictor, all Tawa's friends. But when the tiger finally attacks Tom and he can't pull his gun fast enough, Tawa pulls his knife and sees himself forced to stab the animal ...

Later, while strolling through the jungle, Tom finds Tawa's mother's grave and finds out that trader Kirk is acutally Tawa's grandfather - which is why he lied about the boy's existence. So when Tom leaves the jungle again - alone -, he promises trader Kirk to keep the jungle boy his secret.


Cheap and cheesy jungle film, filmed mainly in unconvincing indoor jungle sets with stock footage of the real jungle later spliced in. Robert Cabal makes a very unconvincing jungle boy. In all, Forbidden jungle is not a good film, however, if you (like me) like cheap and cheesy jungle films, you might enjoy this one, against better knowledge.
