The Adventures of Jungle Jim
Volume 9
 
 
Jungle Jim! The very name conjures up images of exotic locales, wild beasts and hostile natives. Jungle Jim braved these with the aid of his faithful Hindu companion Kolu as he traveled the wilds of southeastern Asia in search of adventure.
 
Jungle Jim is best remembered as the star of sixteen Columbia B-movies starring Johnny Weissmuller, fresh off his twelve-year stint as Tarzan, beginning in 1948. But Jungle Jim’s history goes back more than a decade.
 
Produced by Jay Clark and often written by Gene Stafford, The Adventures of Jungle Jim was on the air weekly from 1935 to 1954. A combination of jungle danger and colonial politics, the show brought listeners tales of slave traders, pirates, foreign spies, wild beasts, poachers, hostile tribes, and, during World War II, the Japanese, as Jim often served as an Allied operative. Armed with his trusty .45 automatic, the adventurer searched for lost treasure and investigated such mysteries as ghosts and unknown islands. Throughout it all, Jungle Jim maintained a cool head.
 
Beginning with Tarzan, the pulp era was full of jungle characters. Jungle Jim is one of the unique ones, in that he wasn’t a barely-literate loincloth-clad tree-dwelling wild man, but rather Jim Bradley, a hunter – a “great white hunter”. Jungle Jim was everything one could ask for in a protagonist – handsome, brave, resourceful.
 
The Adventures of Jungle Jim had its own femme fatale in the form of Lille de Vrille, better known as “Shanghai Lil”. Introduced a couple of years into the serial, she was first played by Vicki Vola. Later, Franc, or France, Hale took over the role.
 
This volume contains 25 fifteen-minute episodes from 1941 and 1942, including the conclusion of “Thorson’s Island” (#321-333) and all of “War Time Adventures” (#334-345), for six hours of exciting and intelligent adventure.
