Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This 1952 programmer was the eighth entry in Columbia's profitable "Jungle Jim" series. Johnny Weissmuller, as ever, stars as pith-helmeted Jungle Jim, who this time must grapple with an avaricious ivory hunter. And that's not all: Jungle Jim is confronted by a legendary "giant man," actually a clever hoax cooked up by a tribe of mercenary natives to drive district commissioner Kingston (Lester Matthews) out of office. Columbia contractees Angela Greene and Jean Willes competently share the leading-lady chores. Fans of the "Jungle Jim" series were immensely satisfied by Forbidden Land, else why would Columbia turn out seven additional entries over the next three years?
