Tigers are on a killing rampage in Damang, South Asia, killing natives
like nobody's business, which is doubly bad because this is where the
Allies (remember, it's 1943 and World War II) get the rubber for their war
efforts from. So rubber trader MacCardle (J.Farrell MacDonald) has sent
for (real life) big game hunter Frank Buck to investigate, capture the
tigers and convince the natives this is not some kind of curse.
Once in Damang, Frank and his assistant Peter (Duncan Renaldo) soon
find out that the tigers are really drugged - which is what makes them so
aggressive - and there might be some Axis foul play behind it. Soon
enough, Frank and Peter also come up with two suspects, animal trader
Gratz (Dan Seymour) and jungle doctor Doc Lang (Arno Frey), and during the
short run (a little under an hour) of the film, everything is pointing to
these two men ... and it is not long before Frank and Peter have collected
enough evidence against them, but when they want to confront Gratz with
the evidence, he is killed in an elephant stampede, while Lang when
confronted, just pulls his gun but is shot by Frank's trusted native
sidekick Ali (Alex Havier) in the nick of time - and the world, or at
least the American war effort, is saved at last.
June Duprez plays Duncan Renaldo's love interest.
So so jungle thriller of the World War II propaganda variety, obviously
made on the cheap and helped by way too many inserts of jungle
stock footage, one of course can never shake the feeling of being in a
B-picture with a budget that doesn't meet the demands of the story, but if
cheap jungle films are your thing, you might as well like Tiger Fangs
