Movie Info

An expedition discovers blonde 16 year-old Liane venerated by the native tribe in the African jungle and returns her to Hamburg where she is welcomed by her grandfather, ship tycoon Von Amelongen. His nephew Schoening, present head of the firm and prospective heir, tries all to stop his uncle from acknowledging her, including perjury, destruction of evidence, and finally resorting to murder. He dies in an accident driving his car into the river in his flight from the police. There is a subplot around a love quadrangle centered around Thoren, who is secretly loved by biologist Jacqueline who is in turn courted by Hungarian Tibor. Thoren plays paternal protector to Liane before succumbing to her youthful charm and returning with her to the jungle.

Audience Reviews for Liane, das Mädchen aus dem Urwald (Liane, Jungle Goddess)

Take the Tarzan myth, and instead put in a young German girl lost in the wild, and voila, Liane, Queen Of The Jungle! Including the usual second unit shots of African wildlife, this one also adds footage of topless dancing native girls. It was a hit in Germany and made a bit of a film career for its sixteen year old star. Considering that it's B movie type material, the adventure/prurient interest tale is not as totally sorry as it sounds. As well, simply for historical perspective there ars shots of inner city Hamburg circa 1956. That's gotta be cool too.

Appropriate music; plot had potential. This movie would have been a blockbuster if it was created as a silent movie in the 1910's; as a 1959 movie, it gets a "C-" grade.
