Jungle Manhunt 1953

Johnny Weissmuller back as Jungle Jim in another film of the series for Columbia. This was the seventh and they were to make 16 in all – which has to be proof that these films were successful.

These Jungle Jim films were always entertaining, and to tell you the truth, if one of them appears on TV even now, I always make a point of watching it – and I always enjoy it.

Sheila Ryan was the female star of the film/ She had been around in films for a few years and had been married very briefly to Western star Allan ‘Rocky’ Lane. She had made quite a few films with Gene Autry before that
