jungle adventure tale follows a lame
by Dennis Schwartz
The American big game hunter Steve Bentley (Rod Cameron) is hired by his long-time friend from the Burma War, the head minister, Rama Singh (Cesar Romero), for a royal family in India, to help stop marauding elephants go on killing sprees in the local villages. It turns out there are woolly mammoths that survived the ice age, who frighten the elephants to stampede. Princess Mari (Marie Windsor) is sent back home from England by her ailing Maharaja father to act as his regent to save the kingdom from this possible catastrophe.
