plot is more involved that similar jungle girl films. Here, adventurer
and treasure-hunter Mike Yates is searching the Amazon jungle for an
Inca treasure when he stumbles across a beautiful jungle girl named
Eve. Later on after returning to civilization, he meets Eve's grandfather,
a man being conned by a charlatan and a woman pretending to be his granddaughter
Eve. At that point, Mike decides to return to the jungle and recruit
Eve to help him find the treasure while reuniting her with her family.
This is the debut film for Celeste Yarnall. It was preceded
with a decade of television work, which included everything from My
Three Sons to
Man From UNCLE, Wild Wild West to Gidget.
But she's probably best remembered for her role of Yeoman Martha Landon
in Star Trek. After EVE,
Celeste went back to TV work for another 40+ years, stopping for only
a handful of films, most notably VELVET
VAMPIRE and BEAST
OF BLOOD ISLAND.
Jungle Girl movies were a significant sub-genre in
'60s Euro Cinema, most notably TARZANA,
GODDESS OF RIO BENE.
