Inspired, perhaps, by the success of Gypsy Rose Lee and Sally Rand but more likely in an attempt to compete with Paramount's Dorothy Lamour, PRC producer George Batcheller brought stripper Ann Corio to the neighborhood screens in Swamp Woman (1941), a miserable jungle melodrama sunk by the little studio's lack of production values. But to everyone's surprise, the delectable Miss Corio proved to be more than a beautiful face (and body), and after the execrable Jungle Siren (1942), she signed with Monogram for Sarong Girl (1943) and Call of the Jungle (1944). It wasn't much but Corio had nothing to be ashamed of and she positively out-performed competitor Margie Hart, who completely floundered in the wretched PRC-produced Lure of the Islands (1942). Corio left films after playing The Sultan's Daughter (1944), with the Ryans, Tim and Irene, but remained in the headlines well into the 1970s via her successful touring show This Was Burlesque.
