Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Jungle Cavalcade is a roundup of highlights from previous documentaries featuring big-game-hunter Frank Buck. Narrated by the ineluctable Mr. Buck himself, the film incorporates clips from Bring 'Em Back Alive, Wild Cargo and Fang and Claw. While these earlier efforts were produced by Van Beuren Productions and released by RKO Radio Pictures, Jungle Cavalcade was solely the responsibility of RKO. Nathaniel Shilkret wrote the music, while Jay Bonafield wielded the editing scissors. Even those who find the jingoistic Frank Buck a bit excessive will enjoy such highlights as his battle with a huge python.
