[squarefocus] Tales of The Unforgotten: Tiger Fangs, 1943
A film about tiger in the wilderness of Malayan Peninsula staring Frank Buck. I post this because the story plot is quite interesting. The story plot: 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, J. Farrell MacDonald, Duncan Renaldo and June Duprez, thwart the Teutonic malefactors: the villainous Nazi Dr. Lang (Arno Frey) and his portly accomplice Henry Gratz (Dan Seymour). Thereafter, life is safe once again in the jungle.

I found out there was a Sumatran Tiger featured in “Frank Buck’s Jungleland” part of 1939 New York World’s Fair. Jungleland was an exhibition of rare birds, reptiles and wild animals furnished by Frank Buck, an American hunter and “collector of wild animals,” as well as a movie actor, director, writer and producer.

A scientific illustration of animals in Indonesia from Friedrich Specht, a German painter and natural history illustrator. There are no explanations of where the illustrations were drawn, but I pretty damn sure this is in Indonesian. How come? Orangutans!
