They learn that a white man with a gun is leading the Skeleton Men and Anne fears that it might be Miller. The tribesmen are being put into forced labor in a mine and Jim sets out to rescue them.

Trivia

In the trailer for "Jungle Manhunt," there is a shot of Jim fighting a man-sized dinosaur - a two-legged, tyrannosaurus-type creature (obviously a man in a suit) - but this doesn't occur in the film itself, probably something that was filmed but then deemed too ridiculous to include in the film.

Good Jungle Jim Adventure
24 February 2007 | by davjazzerSee all my reviews

This is one of the better Jungle Jim entries.Although still low-budget with the usual stock footage it has some good things goibg for it.First of all,Johnny Weissmuller looks quite fit and shows off his physique twice in the film.He looked better here,than in his last Tarzan film.Sheila Ryan as Ann the lady photographer is a beautiful and spunky co-star.She looks lovely in a sarong in a scene where she is getting cozy with the lost football player,Bob Waterfield.(a real-life player).Also along for the ride are Rick Vallin as Jim's native friend,Tamba the Chimp and that great B-actor Lyle Talbot as the villain.A predictable JIM adventure,but still a lot of fun.
