Brief Synopsis

While searching the South Pacific for a missing aviator, Bob Mitchell (Ray Milland) and Jimmy Wallace (Lynne Overman) are caught in a typhoon and crack up on an island, escaping unharmed with the aid of Tura (Dorothy Lamour), a beautiful jungle girl who is the only inhabitant of the island and is believed a goddess by the natives of the adjoining islands. The three are about to leave the island on a make-shift raft when a gang of savage tribesman land, headed by Kuasa (J. Carroll Naish), a half-mad potentate who informs them that all whites are his mortal enemies because an Englishwoman once spurned his love and he got his revenge by stealing her daughter, who is Tura. He had set her up as a goddess but she must now pay for befriending the hated white men by being sacrificed to the crocodiles in an underground temple. An earthquake rocks the island and destroys Kuasa and his band. Bob, Jimmy and Tura find a party of rescuers waiting on the beach, headed by aviation company president J. C. Martin (Jonathan Hale) and his daughter Eleanor (Virginia Vale as Dorothy Howe), Bob's fiancee. It soon becomes evident that Bob must choose between Tura and Elanor.

    Great South Seas/Jungle movie. Dorothy Lamour is absolutely beautiful. I haven't seen this film on television in about forty years. MORE>
