Jungle Love, the Jungle Demon, and Jungle Justice

Born in a small town in Minnesota, Barbara Lee Redfield ran away from home at the age of nineteen with her new husband in search of fame and fortune in Hollywood. She was a gorgeous lady with lusty desires for a wild life that seems to have become her destruction.

She had a six-month affair with Bob Hope, and while living with actor Tom Neal, dated and married Franchot Tone. It seems that Franchot Tone loved her enough to marry her, but couldn’t deal with the other men that she needed to love at the same time. Finally, Franchot Tone had a private detective take pictures of his wife while making love to several other men, and then he made those pictures public around the studios and the town, before filing for divorce. The list of famous men she was romantically involved with include George Raft, Howard Hughes, Mickey Cohen, Gregory Peck, Tom Conway, Gary Cooper, and many more.

Her addiction to a wild lifestyle continued until it finally destroyed her at the age of 39, dying on the bathroom floor of her parent’s home. On the way to that day, she was arrested for shoplifting, possession of heroin, writing bad checks, public drunkenness, and even prostitution. She once gave a bartender an expensive fur coat to settle a $200 bar tab.

In this jungle adventure she is the wife of a plantation owner, but she is in love with the foreman of the plantation, played by Raymond Burr. Tom Conway, one of her real-life lovers, is the doctor in the story, and another of her real-life lovers, Woody Strode, is the policeman who searches for the plant of death.

Barbara Payton is Dina Van Gelder, a neglected wife in search of love. She finds that love with Raymond Burr, the plantation foreman. Unfortunately for the blonde beauty, one of her servants is an expert in the jungle craft of voodoo, and with the help of a strange, illegal plant, puts a deadly curse on the man that she wants to possess. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
