The Lost Jungle │ Clyde Beatty

In this edition of Chandu The Magician we are featuring "The Lost Jungle (1934)" starring Clyde Beatty the great animal trainerBeatty became world famous for his fighting act, in which he entered a cage alone with wild animals, armed only with a whip and a pistol strapped to his side.  The act was designed to showcase his courage and mastery of the wild beasts, which included lions, tigers, cougars, and hyenas.  Sometimes they were all brought together in a single cage, in a potentially lethal combination.  "The Lost City" is particularly interesting as it co-stars a then thirteen-year old Mickey Rooney.  Click on the video widget below to watch this fascinating film in its entirety.  Safe journeys to all the fans of Chandu The Magician, wherever you may be.
