White Savage is a 1943 American adventure film featuring Maria Montez, Jon Hall, and Sabu.

The film is one of a subgenre of colorful "exotic" tales released by Universal during the war years; others include Cobra Woman, Arabian Nights and Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, and, like the others, has a certain Technicolor camp appeal.


Montez is the ruler of the tropical Temple Island, Thomas Gomez the villain scheming to marry her and get hold of the gold bars lining the submerged floor of the island's temple (about which the innocent islanders remain blissfully unconcerned), and Jon Hall the heroic shark hunter who wins the day and the heart of the princess.



Montez's costumes were considered too skimpy in some scenes requiring them to be cut.[1]
