| Stage Direction: Point. Line "Look at that!"
A man has died in Africa, so a letter is sent to Jack Mulhall telling him that his partner has put a large amount of valuable ivory in a hut. Several people go after it in this poor Poverty Row jungle picture.

Andrew Stone had been directing features for four years by this point, but he was a still a director for hire. Here, working from a bad script, editor Frank Atkinson and he cut in a lot of poorly coordinated back-projection pictures of African wildlife that look like they are rejects from TRADER HORN into a soggy plot that is mostly about people wandering about the jungle, pausing occasionally to point or scream at snakes, hyenas, elephants and cheetahs.

It would be another five years until Stone acquired enough pull to because a writer-producer-director, usually working with his wife Virginia. As an auteur he was not a great one, but a capable worker, mostly in moderately-priced programmers and A movies through the early 1970s. At some stage he divorced Virginia and remarried. He died in 1999, aged 97.
