Wild Women of Wongo

I'm just now recovered from my viewing of THE WILD WOMEN OF WONGO. But I still cannot say what my favorite moment is from the film. Perhaps the wild dance ordered by the High Priestess. Perhaps the endless scene where our heroine, the cute-as-a-button redhead Jean Hawkshaw, to the right here, wrestles underwater with a rubber alligator.

You'll have to decide for yourself. First, take a look at the unfortunately bleached-out trailer. Then view the whole film--in glorious "Pathecolor"--on YouTube, in several parts, with the first one featured after the trailer.

Also on YouTube is the MST3K version.

Does anyone else think the dark haired woman in the still shot looks like the boss (Jan) on The Office?

Big Gary--glad to have your enthusiastic approval!

Murph--that is indeed an unrepresentative pic. Check out the video, she's 10x cuter.

Jules--don't know that show, so I can't say. I hope other WU readers chime in.

Those men didn't exactly resist capture, did they? I can't say I blame them; I've heard all kinds of crazy stories about Wongonese women. Grrowwrr!
