Teenaged Mowgli, who was raised by wolves, appears in a village in India and is adopted by Messua. Mowgli learns human language and some human ways quickly, though keeping jungle ideas. Influential Merchant Buldeo is bigoted against ‘beasts’ including Mowgli; not so Buldeo’s pretty daughter, whom Mowgli takes on a jungle tour where they find a treasure, setting the evil of human greed in motion.

Film Review

The last time I watched this film on television was quite a few years ago, and the public domain print was blurry and garish. And so, I really didn't care for the film. Tonight it was on TCM and I thought I'd see if the print was any better. Wow…what a wonderful improvement! The color is still a tad strong, but you know what Technicolor was like in the old days. But this is quite good, and the clarity is perfectly sharp.The first 10 minutes of the film is not really part of the plot, but some beautiful wildlife photography…I guess you could say the jungle book. I'm not quite sure just how wild the wildlife was, but the photography of it is really, quite striking.The part of the story where Mowgli is adjusting to life as a human are quite interesting, and it portrays well how people see good and evil when something strange comes along. I rather enjoy the two performances that are key in this part of the film — Sabu and Rosemary DeCamp, a much underrated actress.Of c…

Although THE JUNGLE BOOK seems to limp along at a slow pace, it catches the eye with its splendid Technicolor photography of lush forests, a brilliantly staged forest fire and the "Lost City" where hidden treasure drives men to greed and destruction. Close-ups of the jungle animals are beautifully shot and all of their scenes are well staged.As Mowgli, the boy raised by wolves, SABU has the fierce looks of a wolf-child, although he does learn to converse in English awfully soon, thanks to some choppy editing continuity. ROSEMARY DeCAMP is his mother, beaming at him with adoration and accepting the fact at the end that he must return to the forest kingdom where he rules rather than stay with man.Joseph CALLEIA is terrific as one of the greedy pursuers of gold, marking Sabu's trail so he can find "The Lost City." JOHN QUALEN too is excellent in another supporting role.Miklos Rozsa's music is not given sufficient strength on the soundtrack, muffled behind all …

I had first seen this movie a number of years ago when my dad rented it for me. Back then, I was at an age were I got fidgety during long movies but this is one that I didn’t take my eyes off of this old movie. I was drawn in by the animal cast, especially the beautiful tiger who portrayed Shere Khan.However, after buying the DVD, I have realized how dated this movie is. The sound isn’t all that great. Many of the special affects are a little obvious, as is the fact that the animals are being given commands off screen. Nonetheless, it is an entertaining movie that is a fun watch on a rainy day.
