Despite Starring "Samoa" Vintage Film has No Relation to Island

Film exploits the name only

Jungle exploitations, so bad they were almost good ... almost!  Sixties B films still make it to bad movie events more to laugh at than admire.

 This one caught my eye because the title said "Samoa, Fille Sauvage" and as a former resident of Samoa I had to check it out.

The film was made in Italian in 1968 by Italian diredtor Guido Malatesta  and released the same year in French. It never made it to an English release according to research on the IMDB.

Of course, it turns out to have tigers, Jon boats, and Indonesian natives, none of which are found in Samoa.

 However, the waterfalls are beautiful, and the unlikely jungle princess is Edwige Fenech looking a bit pale for someone who has lived in the sun all her life.
