Reception The Jungle Princess_section_2

Writing for The Spectator in 1937, Graham Greene gave the film a mildly positive review. The Jungle Princess_sentence_7

He critiqued the film's hackneyed use of exaggerated social consciousness as a trope, but noted that "the climax is magnificent" and ultimately characterized it as a "lively picture". The Jungle Princess_sentence_8

The Jungle Princess was a major hit and launched Lamour's career as one of the leading stars of the era, often cast in similar sarong-clad jungle adventure romances, which led to her playing leading lady to Bing Crosby and Bob Hope in the Road to... musical comedy movie series beginning four years later. The Jungle Princess_sentence_9

The Indonesian film Terang Boelan (1937) was partially inspired by The Jungle Princess. The Jungle Princess_sentence_10
