Black Devils of Kali is the alternate English-language title for the German Mystery of the Black Jungle. Lex Barker plays the head of expeditionary forces, forging into the wilds of India. Far from civilization, Barker and company come across an idol-worshipping tribe. The object of idolatry is Kali, who, if you remember the 1939 film Gunga Din, is the god of Death. Black Devils of Kali was based on a novel by Emilio Salgari; the director was Ralph Murphy, who in happier times was a fixture on the Paramount Pictures lot.
