Exploring the deepest jungle of Africa, Ramar, jungle doctor (Jon Hall)
& his companion Ogden (Ray Montgomery) meet O'Malley, a big game
hunter, who, passing through from India, seems to have mislaid 2 live
tigers, & now he tries to capture these savage beasts again, alive,,
if possible ... & it's a good thing he is after them too, because the
tigers have already killed one native & the medicine man of the native
tribe of this episode has promptly made Ramar responsible & sent him a
devil doll (which is bad, in case you wondered), & soon Ogden,
foolishly, cuts himself on the needle sticking out of the doll, & is
temporarily poisoned (of course Ramar has the antidote).
The next day,
Ramar & O'Malley decide to pay this episode's native tribe a visit,
& en route they see one of O'Malley's tigers fighting a local
waterbuffalo ... & losing his life doing so.
Having arrived at this
episode's native tribe, Ramar persuades the medicine man to accompany him
to the jungle so Ramar can show him the tigers are no evil black magic but
are made of flesh & blood ... & on the way to look for the dead
tiger, they see the other tiger fighting a boa constrictor - & losing
his life doing so.
bnow the medicine man is convinced the tigers are no
black magic & calls Ramar his friend.
One has to
admit, the scenes of the tigers fighting the water buffalo & the boa
constrictor are pretty impressive, even if this is not normally your sort
of thing. But of course these scenes are most probably from some forgotten
documentary, & the silly story seems to be built especially to fit in
with the footage ... & is not very convincing in doing so, as the
studio jungle-scenes & the stock footage jungle scenes are not matched
all that well. What remains is a rather lame excuse for 2 great scenes.
