Following the success of his role as Tarzan, Johnny Weissmuller starred in a series of films as Jungle Jim, a character first depicted in a comic strip by Alex Raymond and Don Moore. Weissmuller played a hunter with a deep knowledge of the native people of the area, and its land and animals. Most often, Jim faced off against evil and greedy scientists who were attempting to exploit the region and its people or resources for profit. Substantial adventure and danger from the jungle wildlife drive a fast pace, not to mention comic relief from Jim’s pet chimp, Tamba. In this entry, Jungle Jim faces a diamond smuggler willing to destroy the local tribe to control a diamond mine. Karin Booth plays a young doctor who crosses Jim’s path. Newly remastered.
