PlotEdit

Two unscrupulous geologists force the locals to work in a hidden diamond mine. Bomba, who narrowly avoids being buried alive, rescues them and defeats the villains. Bomba demonstrates some communication skills as a jungle drummer (an ability that is used in all the movies that follow).

There is also some underwater action in this movie and a cameo by Woody Strode.[3]
