Sheena has been raised by Kali for about 20 years in an African village without electricity nor much contact with Western Civilization. With no exposure to radio nor television, Sheena would be expected to speak English with Kali's accent rather than an American accent as Sheena had no American role model. See more »
First I want to say so the people trading the story line of a white girl in Africa are just tools. Sheena as a character goes way back to the 30s... Just like Tarzan. No one seems to mind that.
I used to watch the first Sheena in Black and White on TV IN THE FIFTIES... Along with Rama The White Hunter, Tarzan, Jungle Jim and countless other Saturday morning escapism shows. I like Gena Lee Nolin's interpretation the best.
She and. Cutter had great chemistry, the action was family friendly and she always held a moral high ground, especially about the sexual tension between she and Matt Cutter.
Yes the costuming and creature effects were not as good as they would be by today's standards, but taken in context, they were appropriate for the time and audience.
Look for Sheena to return to the big screen. Fans will recognize that Sheena hails from the same area as The Black Panther. Same jungle, same red healing earth, same names of some of the regions and of course... The magic of transformation into animals.
Gena was sweet, played her role a bit tongue in cheek but never played the character down or dumb. It's a fun ride. Just go along and stop looking for reasons to hate on a pretty girl in a jungle costume.
