Attack of the Jungle Women (1959) as Prod supv
This is a film comprised primarily from footage shot by the exploring team of Mr. and Mrs. William Phillips, nee Bill and Eve Phillips, a minor league version of the better-known Martin and Osa Johnson. It, between tons of shots of bare-breasted Choco and Cuna Indian women, has a flimsy plot about a party of engineers "seeking" a continental highway route from South America through Central America to the United States. It also uses stock footage of U.S. airforce helicopters, called the non-existant United States Rescue Service here,as part of the search mission plot toward the end. No branch of the U.S. armed services provided any funding or cooperation on the making of this film, and the William Phillips in this film is not actor William 'Bill' Phillips. The only two names connected to this film that anybody had ever heard of before (barely) or afterwards are A. R. Milton and Archie Dattlebaum.
