4.0 out of 5 stars Not the best, but I loved it. September 8, 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Clyde Beaty of Darkest Africa/Batmen of Africa stars in this wonderful serial. He was known as the greatest animal trainer in the world. He does battle with plenty in this. As well you see what is a little disturbing, but as well interesting and that is the fighting of a tiger and a lion. I believe this to be quite the keeper among serials and is a defintite must have for any collector. I will watch this one over and over...

3.0 out of 5 stars Lions, and Tigers, and Bears (and leopards and more) January 29, 2006
Format:DVD
I had never watched a movie quite like this one. The animal scenes were quite real and the animals appeared to have been injured in the process. I am a big fan of documentaries, but knowing that the scenes where predators were in close proximity to herbivores was staged offended even my usual open-minded sensibilities.

This movie was a serial, and you need both volume 1 and volume 2 to have the whole thing. The plot is simple. Animal trainer Clyde Beatty (playing himself) heads off after girl friend Ruth Robinson (Cecilia Parker) after she and her father disappear during an expedition. Clyde takes a dirigible across the ocean, but the dirigible encounters a storm, as can be seen by cheesy animated effects.

The dirigible lands on an island. It just so happens that Ruth and her father are on the same island. Sharkey (Warner Richmond) keeps trying to sabotage Beatty's efforts, and he lands on the island by parachute, unbeknownst to everyone else. Sharkey finds Ruth's father and the treasure, and is looking for the captain of the ship so that he can leave the island. Unfortunately for Sharkey, his character meets the stereotypical ironic ending.

In the end, the good guys get the critters, the jewels and the babe. Isn't everyone happy?

This movie is quite anachronistic. We know that no islands exist with the variety of animals shown in this movie. Also, the predator density was too high to be sustained. Lastly, this island had African lions and North American mountain lions, which is a good trick in any era. On the other hand, if you can suspend your common sense and knowledge of the world, and you can ignore the cruelty to the animals in the movie (though the cruelty shown was not considered cruel in that era), this movie is an interesting artifact of another era.

3.0 out of 5 stars Clyde Beatty shows his stuff January 2, 2010
Format:DVD
Evidently I watched a different version. This was also released in the same year and under the same title as a 68-minute feature version of the serial by Mascot Pictures Corporation. It is incorporated in the 50 movie pack Sci-Fi collection.

Plenty of animal training scenes staring the Hogenbeck-Wallace Animals. Clyde the benevolent and gentle animal trainer is too naive about human nature to realize that one of his men Sharkey (Warner Richmond) tries to kill him every time he turns around, and too preoccupied to realize he must marry Ruth Robinson (Cecilia Parker) or lose her to a South Seas trip planned by her father.

While Clyde is busy playing with his felines, Ruth and her father Capt. Robinson (Edward LeSaint) are ship wrecked on an uncharted island of Kamor with lions, tigers, bears, and more unscrupulous beasts. Ruth gives Clyde the bird. I mean sends him a cable by carrier pigeon.

Clyde to the rescue on a new air ship. Lightning strikes in a storm and you guest it Dirigible Victory splits up. Sharkey bails like a rat leaving a sinking ship, with the only parachute. What are their chances of getting lost on the same island? What is worse Sharkey is lose somewhere and up to his nefarious plots.

Will Clyde become tiger chow and who will get the girl?
