Jungle Jim number 6:

Jungle Jim (Johnny Weissmuller) saves the life of Cameron (William Henry), whose plane just crashed in the jungle, and then lets himself be persuaded to help Cameron to find his friend Professor Dunham (Joel Friedkin), who in turn was last seen looking for the legendary Okongo, an animal that looks like a pony that is partially painted as a zebra (and that's probably exactly what it is) that one tribe of (white) natives worship as their god.

Soon, Jim and Cameron are joined on their expedition by white native girl Leta (Sherry Moreland), who is looking for the men of her teribe who were abducted by a group of gangsters and made to hunt Okongoes - and it seems the good professor is one of them - though later it will turn out that he was actually kidnapped by the gangsters, who want him to produce a narcotic only found in the Okongo's glands (what ?).

Eventually our trio of adventurers has to cross a desert in which Jim has to fight a (very unconvincing) giant spider, later he also has to fight a leopard ... and then Cameron turns evil when he is revealed to be not a caring friend of the professor but the boss of our Okongo-stealing gangsters. Soon enough too Cameron and his men have captured Jungle Jim and made him to help them Okongo-hunting ... but Leta makes it back to her tribe, or rather the women of her tribe, and in the finale during a sandstorm Leta's women attack the gangsters while the captured men of her tribe and Jungle Jim rebel, and in the end the gangsters are overthrown and everything is back to normal in the Congo that is obviously inhabited only by whites ...

 

I have to admit, this is a bad to ridiculous film (the Jungle Jim-films tend to be), but as other films of the series, it has a so-bad-it's-good feel to it, and if you can enjoy a film exactly for its shortcomings, you'll e greatly rewarded ...
