The Wild Women of Wongo (1958)
Savage in battle… primitive in love… prehistoric beauties live by the code of the jungle!
The Wild Women of Wongo (1958) is an American film directed by James L. Wolcott, featuring low budget, stereotypical portrayals of fictional tropical islanders. In this oddball cult favorite, Mother Nature decides to try out a fun little experiment on a remote tropical island. Two different primitive tribes inhabit opposite sides of the island; the Wongo, remarkable for the fact their women are beautiful and their men are slack-jawed brutes, and the Goona, recognizable by their handsome men and unsightly women. Eventually, an attack by apemen causes the two tribes to meet for the first time. The Wongo women, wildly enthusiastic over the newly discovered beefcake, decide the Goona tribesmen are going to marry them whether they like the idea or not. The story also involves alligators, talking parrots, and a dragon god. The entire film was shot at an amusement park in Florida. The Wild Women of Wongo was the only completed project for screenwriter Cedric Rutherford; director James L. Wolcott, who also made his debut with this picture, went on to assemble The Best of Laurel and Hardy nine years later.
