Summary, etc.: There couldn't have been a better way to showcase Rudyard Kipling's famous jungle tale than in eye-popping Technicolor under the fantastic direction of Zoltan Korda (Sahara), and filling the role of Mowgli with the legendary Sabu (Elephant Boy, The Thief of Bagdad). This 1942 feature was nominated for four Academy Awards (including one for Miklos Rozsa's musical score) and serves as a nice companion piece to the beloved 1967 Disney cartoon. But beware-there are no singing animals here: just a darker, more realistic depiction of the jungle striking back at those who would violate its secret code!
