Editorial Reviews

What would you find in the heart of white woman who was the captive bride of a cave-dwelling savage? Grotesque and weird though it may seem, a blonde English-speaking woman was found naked living in a cave! This shocking discovery turned Dr. Paul C. Withington's expedition into a drama of truth stranger than fiction and gave this picture its title. Former Harvard professor, Dr. Withington, vouches for the total accuracy of this remarkable motion picture.

On expedition in the remote reaches of Australia, Dr. Withington sought a living descendant of the Neanderthal man of 50,000 years ago when he made his astounding discovery. All true, all filmed as it happened - this amazing real-life adventure was lost to public view for over 50 years!

BONUS: Contains fascinating reproduction of original pressbook materials.

The title and cover are misleading. This is not action or drama packed and there is no blond captive. It goes in my small collection of old films that exploit the interest in primitive peoples and human evolution for entertainment value. Where it differs from others is that it makes a clear effort to appear scientific and includes Harvard professors and actual famous names in science.

The idea is that back then they thought Neanderthals might still be living, off in Australia. So there is a lecture on the topic in the Explorer's club and they explain their expedition to find some. Next the expedition wanders widely across the Pacific and shows detours to Hawaii, New Zealand, etc. and some dances and bare breasts to give us our money's worth and to give National Geographic a run for its money.

Eventually they do make it to Australia and then even more eventually to a very remote area. There they do find a white women who was shipwrecked way back and is married to a tribal Aborigine and is mother to his blond child. She does not want to go back with them. That is the thread of the story.

What is most interesting is how dated this is. 1931 after all. The science is bad, and the ethnography is bad. Foreign people are unselfconsciously spoken of through the eyes of white people. Women's beauty is freely commented on in terms of white standards. There is no effort to inform us about the strange customs that we see or give us insights into the thinking of the various people that we see. To put it in terms of so-called political correctness there is a lot of racism and sexism in the commentary and choice of images even though this is all supposed to be scientific. As a historical artifact I find all this to be a very interesting reminder.
