FEMALE JUNGLE (1954 U.S.) D/W: BRUNO VeSOTA W/P: BURT KAISER
Depending on whether he directed DAUGHTER OF HORROR or not, this could be either VeSota's first or second feature as director. Lawrence Tierney is an alcaholic cop suffering from blackouts who's not sure if he strangled a blonde movie actress to death. Kathleen Crowley is the next victim, the wife of out-of-work hard-drinking caricature artist Burt Kaiser. John Carradine is the chief suspect and Jayne Mansfield figures in the story too. This ARC release has a good hardboiled atmosphere but isn't really that special. With Cornelius Keefe and VeSota, who directed only two others after this, THE BRAIN EATERS and INVASION OF THE STAR CREATURES.
