The first time Hollywood brought its cameras to the Dark Continent was for this adventure film that was probably more dangerous for the film crew than it was for the characters in the story.
| Original Score: 3/4
A good-looking animal picture.
By today's standards, Van Dyke's jungle adventure contains both racist and sexist elements, but at the time it was a stirring picture due to on-location shooting.

| Original Score: 4/5
Remains interesting as a curio.
