Tired Old Queen at the Movies: The Naked Jungle

Steve Hayes reviews the 1954 adventure film:
Charlton Heston and Eleanor Parker battle the heat, the elements and each other in the tropics of South America in THE NAKED JUNGLE directed by Byron Haskin.

Parker plays the mail order bride of a plantation owner played by Heston. He likes everything he owns to be new, including his wife. When he discovers she is a widow, he is as repulsed by her as he is attracted and a war between the sexes begins. Their eventual love for each other, is tested when their lives become threatened by the onslaught of millions of marauding army ants, devouring everything in their path. Shot in glorious color, with great performances and loaded with high drama and romance, THE NAKED JUNGLE is action, adventure and melodrama at its very best.
