Swan · Linda Veras · Poldo Bendandi · Conrad Loth · Archie Savage · Antonietta
Director Romano Ferrara
made four films between 1962-67, with GUNGALA being his last (preceded
by the Euro SciFi thriller PLANETS
AGAINST US). Little is known about him after he completed this
motion picture. He did not return to the director chair for the sequel,
NUDE PANTHER which was helmed by Ruggero Deodato in 1968. Most
sources agree that Mr Ferrara retired from filmmaking to follow a career
in his family's furniture business and that he passed away in 1998.
This 'jungle girl'
film - incredibly difficult to find in English - follows the trek of two
uranium explorers who are bamboozed by an unscrupulous guide using the
safari as a guise to rob a sacred diamond from the native Basoko tribe.
But it's really a jungle girl named Gungala who has the diamond and she
is forced to impose her own justice of the jungle.
Italian film; widescreen print (16:9), totally uncut version with deleted
scenes, in English language,
DVD encoded for WORLD FORMAT NTSC, playable on any American machine. Extras
