Three years ago, Parsta (Byron Keith), an Indian Maharajah who has been turned into a guide in Africa due to a curse, has found Velda (Jacqueline Fontaine), a savage girl who was reared by the apes and who can speak the language of the animals. Parsta has managed to overcome her and brought her back to civilisation, where she has soon fallen in love with Joseph.

Back in the now, despite Parsta's warnings, Joseph's brother Arthur (Allan Nixon) wants to take her back to the jungle to see which side of her will win out ver the other, the savage or the civilized side (why he wants to find that out is at anyone's guess). So he has mounted a little expedition, consisting of him, Velda, Joseph, photographer Cyril (Cliff Taylor) and Parsta, but Parsta dies before the expedition even starts.

Soon - demonstrated by a weird dance by Velda with a shrunken head - it becomes clear that Parsta's curse has passed on, but more of that later ...

At first its our little safari on a walk through the jungle, every now and again stopping to observe the scenery and jungle animals aplenty, all friends of Velda (and all stock footage of course), then they are even attacked by some native tribe, but Velda manages to scare them away, and finally they decide to go into gorilla country - not a pleasent spot to be in, unless you are a gorilla. Once there, Velda soon catches the eye of not one but two gorillas, who start a fight over her, while our heroes, trying to save her, get killed.

In the end, Velda walks away with the victorious gorilla.


You might have guessed it, Untamed Mistress is utterly silly, and it's not at all helped by a pointless story (why again are they going into gorilla country), carelessly intercut footage of African wildlife or native dances, nor by the fake looking gorilla costumes or even Velda's dress which she chose to go into the jungle (now I have never been on a safari, but my guess is her long dress is about the least suitalbe piece of textile to wear on such an endeavor), or her weird dance sequence (that is more reminiscent of a tame striptease performance than anything else). And then there are of course wooden actors, bland dialogue and off-screen narration, a pointless prologue about the Maharajah's curse, and so on ...

All this makes the film great, an unjustly masterpiece of inept but totally entertaining moviemaking, right up there with the best films of Ed Wood. This one just has to be seen to be believed, it's a laugh riot - granted you will laugh at all the wrong moments, but it's great fun nevertheless.
