Shots of the "City of the Dead", supposedly in Africa, are clearly of Angkor Wat in Cambodia. See more »
Oh, Dad, this is getting monotonous! Every year we do the same thing. We go to Saratoga, we go to Newport, then we come to Glencove for the yacht races.
Well, I always win.

I've just watched Jungle Man for the first time and found fairly enjoyable, despite reading some bad reviews about it.
A party, including a woman and her dad set off to Africa to search for The City of the Dead, located in the depths of one of the jungles there. They have to face several dangers on their way including lions, tigers, snakes and head hunters. When they do find it, they discover it a ruin and explore and take some film of it. On the way back to camp, the woman finds a lion cub and decides to take it with her. A big mistake as several lions then attack the camp looking for it. Everybody is OK at the end though.
Jungle Man has extensive stock footage of animals and natives dancing but that didn't spoil my enjoyment.
The cast includes former Tarzan actor Buster Crabbe, Charles Middleton and Sheila Darcy.
Though not brilliant, Jungle Man is a good way to spend an hour one afternoon.
Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
