When he is escaping the law with his little daughter Doreen & a bagful of jewellery, old man Stockwell's (Herbert Rawlinson) plane crashes, & he shoots the pilot when the man encounters his loot. Doreen has meanwhile wandered off into the jungle & found a friend in Samson (Ray Corrigan), a giant but wounded gorilla who she nurses back to health. The old man, upon seeing that, figures the ape would make a perfect bodyguard ...

Years have passed. Ray Gorman (Buster Crabbe), together with his trusted servant Tobo (Prince Modupe) is searching the jungle for the stolen jewels to clear his father's name - who committed suicide over being accused of having stolen them -, when he learns about a white witch deep in the jungle, & of course figures that white witch can only be the grown up Doreen (Julie London). Subsequently he figures he has to find her in order to find the jewels - which he sets out to do ...

But of course, when embarking on such a mission, one has always take into account the greed of others, as soon greedy couple Carl (Barton MacLane) & Marie (Fifi D'Orsay) are on Ray's trail ...

After facing all the typical jungle-perils, Ray & Tobo are finally finding definite clues of Doreen - but they also find gorilla Samson, who no sooner kills Tobo, & would do the same to Ray if it wasn't for Doreen, who holds the ape back, having grown curious of the light skinned man. She soon grows affectionate of Ray, but her giant pet grows increasingly jealous. The jewels though, she refuses to give to Ray - even though her dad has long died - claiming they are hers ... Enter Marie (Fifi D'Orsay) - who has followed Ray all alone after Carl has hurt his ankle - who soon flirts with Ray, making Doreen jealous, & helps him device a plan to get to the jewels - involving setting up a trap for Samson.

& after the gorilla is safely put away in a cage, the plan actually seems to work - but once Ray has the jewels everything goes haywire, as Carl has in the meantime caught up with the group, takes the Jewels off Ray at gunpoint & wounds him as a reward for his efforts. But when he & Marie want to make their final getaway from the place, Doreen shows up, wanting her jewels back - & what do you know, Carl immediately falls for her even though he beats her up, & picks the worst moment to break up with Marie. In tears she runs off & in anger releases Samson from his cage - only to be immediately killed by the ape, who then goes after Carl - even though the man repeatedly fires his gun at him - & kills him too, but does not survive the fight himself.

Doreen meanwhile decides to return to civilization with Ray, now that her best friend is no more ...

 

Another of these ever popular White Goddess of the Jungle-movies, this one made rather on the cheap. But it's fun, in a corny kind of way. For one it's steeped in pulp clichés, which are carelessly thrown in with next to no attempt at relism being made, on the other hand the movie doesn't take its stupid plot too seriously, especially Buster Crabbe, who - in his dialogues with Julie London as the jungle girl - shows some unexpected comedic talent not necessarily thought to be found in a cheapo jungle-pic.
