Genre: adventure

Picture Quality: B



Filled from front to back with stock footage taken from the Columbia

"production" finds the mighty jungle avenger and legendary Captain

Africa (John Hart) - A "Phantom" rip-off that side-stepped the need to pay

King Features another fee for using the character - pledging to see that

the legitimate Arabian caliph, Hamid (Paul Marion), is restored to the

throne which a tyrannical rival has usurped. He is joined in this

enterprise by adventurer Ted Arnold (Rick Vallin), wild-animal trapper Nat

Coleman (Bud Osborne), and his assistant Omar (Ben Welden) and, to

cover all bases, the Arabian princess Rhoda (June Howard). This rambles

on for 15 chapters as they are beset by guards of the tyrant caliph, desert

outlaws, wild beasts of the jungle, and a pair of white adventurers, Boris

(Lee Roberts) and Greg (Terry Frost), (doing the work of dozens for

budgetary reasons) who have a vested interest in keeping the usurper

on the throne.
