Deep, deep in the African jungle: Henry Spraig has rendered his former partner Curtis paralized with the help of a voodoo doll provided by native Tomwa, to force him to tell him where he has hidden his money. When chief Atoomba from the neighbouring native tribe stops by though & sees the sick man, he insists on bringing in his friend, jungle doctor Ramar (Jon Hall).

Spraig, realising that that might be the end of his little voodoo-experiment, sends Tomwa & a couple of his men to meet Ramar half-way & kill him as a welcome present, but when Tomwa & his natives attack Ramar & his 2 sidekicks doctor Ogden (Ray Montgomery) & black servant Willie (Nick Stewart), they prove to be no match for the jungle doctor's gun.

In another attempt to keep Ramar from thwarting his plans, Spraig tells Tomwa to hide Curtis somewhere in the jungle for the duration of Ramar's stay, but Tomwa, coming across a stampeding elefant while carrying Curtis, drops the whiteman & runs for it on his own ... & he drops Curtis right where Ramar & co can find him (!).

Ramar, examining Curtis, soon finds out his paralysis is not physical but mental - produced by an unconscious fear of voodoo-magic - & persuades Curtis that he can walk again. Then he even finds the voodoo-doll that started it all in the hut of Tomwa, chief Altoomba's medicine man - & soon he has chief Altoomba convinced that Tomwa & Spraig are the evildoers of this story.

But Spraig, seeing that almost all is lost, comes up with a last ingenious plan: He shoots chief Altoomba & makes look as if Ramar had shot him. & Tomwa has no reservations to declare the chief dead prematurely ... But thank god Ramar's a doctor, & with a adrenalin vaccination he can bring the chief back to life, & from here on it's no big deal of rounding up Spraig & Tomwa & bringing them to justice.


Some epsiodes of Ramar were fairly imaginative if trashy blends of jungle-adventure & horror, science fiction or murder mystery, or even all combined. This episode however is a very formulaic streamlined effort that shows little motivation to go out of its way to tell a good story. Not that it's completely bad or worst ever ... it's just rather dull.
