Tiger fangs 1943 jungle adventure
Tiger Fangs (1943) is an American adventure/thriller film starring Frank Buck and June Duprez, directed by Sam Newfield for Producers Releasing Corporation.
Frank Buck tangles with Nazis who have been doping tigers in Malaya, thereby making man-eaters of them. With the cats on a rampage, rubber production is seriously curtailed and the Allied war effort jeopardized. Buck and his associates, Peter Jeremy, Geoffrey MacCardle and Linda McCardle, thwart the Teutonic malefactors: the villainous Nazi Dr. Lang (Arno Frey) and his portly accomplice Henry Gratz. Thereafter, life is safe once again in the jungle.

“Juves should find this Frank Buck actioner exciting. It's a fiction piece, and not the usual jungle travelogue…June Duprez is as attractive a biologist as one could hope to meet up with in the middle of the jungle.”
“The animal shots are eye-filling, as usual, and especially well photographed…They're convincing enough…to keep the younger generation glued to movie house seats. Sam Newfield directed with a good sense of melodramatic action, and it is Mr. Buck himself who gives the stand-out performance. The jungle fellow is a right natural actor.”
As of 2014, Tiger Fangs holds a two and a half star rating (5.1/10) on IMDb.
