Jungle Jim deals with a missing Woman's Army Corps captain (Ann Savage) and a pigmy chief (Billy Curtis). And that's only half the story. The rest is the usual tangle with natives, animals, overgrown jungle scenery, and foreign agents after a mysterious plant. This Mexican lobby card is eye-catching and well executed: note how the captain is looking at Jungle Jim but Jungle Jim is busy listening to his monkey pal. And boy, those chimps can chatter. That pretty sums up the romantic heat in this one. Considered camp today, with the stock footage, fake animals, and gorilla-suited stuntmen, nonetheless it's still fun for a matinee showing.
