Deep in the African jungle, Ramar white jungle doctor (Jon Hall), his
assistant Ogden (Robert Montgomery) encounter Wilkens (Harry Woods), a crooked trader
who has previously been banned from the jungle for being crooked, &
who makes a living out of selling whiskey to the native tribes. Ramar
sends him away, but it's almost certain their paths will meet again ...
in a seemingly unrelated story, a plane crashes, & the jungle drums
tell Ramar that its passengers - Davis, his secretary Mary & their
jungle guide Peters - were abducted by the Agomis, an evil cannibalistic
tribe (even though no cannibalism is shown, of course). So Ramar decides
to save the trio, & he takes his cockney guide Charlie (James Fairfax)
Ambushing the Ogamis' village, the 2 of them see the tent with
the 3 prisoners, heavily guarded, & they see Wilkens (told you they'd
meet again), obrviously friends witht he Ogamis chieftain & his only
whiskey supplier. So a plan is easily made up: Charlie pretends to throw
in with Wilkens, proising him to help with the whiskey deliveries &
convincing him that freeing the prisoners could be a financially
profitable operation. So the 2 of them give whiskey to the prisoners'
guards until they are drunk enough to be easily overcome. Then the guards
are overcome, & once the prisoners are free Ramar knocks out Wilkens.
Ramar & Charlie then lead the prisoners to safety, all except Peters,
who has laid eyes on the Ogamis' gold idol, is overcome by greed, tries to
steal it, but it all ends in a fight with the Ogamis' chief during which
the hut they are in catches fire & they both die in the flames ...
need I tell you that greed never pays ?
Another naive jungle
adventure with a naive message & lots of stock footage sloppily edited
in in (but aren't most Ramar of the Jungle-episodes like
this). Still, some naive fun, if nothing else.
