Its American title was Love Powder, but most exhibitors preferred to stick to the film's original moniker Goona-Goona. This was the second of the many exotic documentaries assembled by intrepid explorer-hunters Andre Roosevelt and Armand Denis. Amidst reams of authentic expedition footage, the producers endeavored to contrive a dramatic plotline involving the romance between a Balinese prince and a servant girl. Our hero finally wins the heroine's love with the help of a magic potion concocted by the local witch doctor. Goona-Goona was re-edited to conform to American censorship restrictions by Al Friedlander, the head of First Division Pictures.
