Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Jungle Man-Eaters was #13 in Columbia's "Jungle Jim" series. On this occasion, Jim (Johnny Weissmuller) takes on a vicious smuggler named Latour (Gregory Gaye), who intends to corner the world's diamond trade. Assisting our hero is Scotland Yard inspector Bernard (Richard Stapley) and erudite tribal chieftan Zuwaba (Bernie Hamilton). A touch of feminity is added by Karin Booth as Bonnie, Inspector Bernard's lady friend. A fierce battle with a crocodile is but one of the many perils facing Jungle Jim as he tracks down his quarry. After Jungle Man-Eaters, Johnny Weissmuller elected to use his own name on-screen in all future "Jungle Jim" endeavors.
