Description by OLDIES.com:

Produced by Carl Laemmle Jr., the man responsible for Universal's classic horror cycle of the 1930s, East of Borneo is a fevered dream of the Congo that features captivating performances from cult actresses Rose Hobart and Lupita Tovar (from Universal's Spanish version of Dracula).

Linda (Hobart), wife of cold-hearted scientist Dr. Allan Clark (Charles Bickford), travels into the jungle to find her missing husband. She discovers him perpetually inebriated and installed as court physician to the Prince of Marudo (Georges Renavent). When the scheming prince falls for Linda, she and Dr. Clark must plot a path back to civilization at great risk to their lives.

Featuring 18-foot slithering serpents, prowling tigers, a smoking volcano that is about to erupt and a percussive, chanting soundtrack, East of Borneo is thrilling high adventure.

Product Description:

A desperate young woman (Rose Hobart) travels 6,000 miles to Borneo and then commences upon a treacherous journey inland in search of her physician husband. When she finds him, he has become the drunken doctor to a megalomaniacal jungle "Prince" (Georges Renavent) who targets her as the mother of his children. Featuring a well-executed volcano sequence at its conclusion, EAST OF BORNEO is an exciting, early example of an action film.

Stock footage Movie Lover: from Middle Village, NY US -- February, 27, 2010

The great thing about those old jungle movies is that you get a chance to see a lot of studio footage of animals - often to the exclusion of the plot and characters. Ok, it's a jungle movie: wife hunts for husband deep inside of Borneo (taking at least 2 evening gowns and lots of makeup with her), there's plenty of crocs and an evil prince and a volcano and the hero fights off dozens of natives and...well, you get the picture.


Helps if you like crocodiles Movie Lover: from Columbia, MD US -- March, 6, 2006

If you are bored by footage of exotic animals, you may find this film a bit slow-moving, but it does have a great melodramatic story to tell. A "civilized" couple comes under the power of one of those oriental potentates who alternate between lustful sadism and exotic gallantry. A prophecy is mentioned at one point, and naturally it has to be spectacularly fulfilled by the time the movie ends.

Unfortunately, Lupita Tovar, whose life story is a deal more interesting than her role here, is relegated to the role of the native woman who adores the unworthy white man. Minimal dialogue: mostly she gazes adoringly. The potentate gets the best lines.
