Umgawa! Johnny Sheffield's jungle boy uses the word associated with Johnny Weissmuller's Tarzan for the first time in a Bomba film. In his fifth adventure on film, the jungle lad encounters a safari of hunters who are trapping lions for later sale to zoos. Former wrestler Woody Strode is cast as the warrior Walu, and would later encounter two Tarzans - Gordon Scott in "Tarzan's Fight for Life" and Jock Mahoney in "Tarzan's Three Challenges".
