Audience Reviews for The Lost Tribe


39/100. The extremely low budget Jungle Jim series was a poor excuse to continue Johnny Weissmuller's Tarzan legend. The acting is sub par by everyone, and he seems to wrestle with a rubber crocodile in every entry.Thank goodness they are short, most just over an hour. In this one, Jungle Jim is doing his best to prevent some bad guys from stealing a hidden treasure , along the way encountering beasts ranging from sharks and giraffes to lions. A lot of stock footage is used. Notable for future television actress, Elena Verdugo.
