Beyond the blue horizon
28 November 2009 | by Doufus-3See all my reviews

I too saw this movie as a youngster (8 or 9 years of age)and I remember the climatic scene. Dorothy Lamour's pet tiger was killed in it by the rogue elephant and I had just lost a pet cat. I cried, but I recovered in time to see the elephant beast fall to its death. I still have the theme song on an LP record. I would love to see this movie again but I have never seen a listing for it in the years I have had cable TV. This was the second Dorothy Movie in which she portrayed a jungle heroine with a pet tiger. The other being The Jungle Princess and the tiger also gets killed in that one while trying to protect her. It seems a shame that I can watch The Range Riders with Eddie Dean on cable TV but I cannot see Beyond the blue horizon.
