You knew what you were in for when you saw the title, so don't grouse. Don Taylor stars as a doctor/adventurer who ventures into the South America jungle with explorer Eduardo Cianelli. Taylor and Cianelli stumble upon a race of green-skinned Amazon women, all of whom look suspiciously like unemployed startlets. The Amazons are hold white woman Gianna Segale captive as a good-luck fetish (shades of Trader Horn). Some nice Brazilian location photography by Mario Page lifts this nonsense above the usual perils-in-the-jungle syndrome. Love Slaves of the Amazons was produced, directed and written by Curt Siodmak, who in happier days penned the scripts for Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (1942), Son of Dracula (1943) and Beast With Five Fingers (1946).
