Tiger Fangs (1943) is an American adventure/thriller film starring Frank Buck and June Duprez, directed by Sam Newfield for Producers Releasing Corporation.

Plot[edit]

Frank Buck tangles with Nazis who have been doping tigers in Malaya, thereby making man-eaters of them. With the cats on a rampage, rubber production is seriously curtailed and the Allied war effort jeopardized. Buck and his associates, Peter Jeremy, Geoffrey MacCardle and Linda McCardle, thwart the Teutonic malefactors: the villainous Nazi Dr. Lang (Arno Frey) and his portly accomplice Henry Gratz. Thereafter, life is safe once again in the jungle.

Reception[edit]

“Juves should find this Frank Buck actioner exciting. It's a fiction piece, and not the usual jungle travelogue…June Duprez is as attractive a biologist as one could hope to meet up with in the middle of the jungle.” [1]

“The animal shots are eye-filling, as usual, and especially well photographed…They're convincing enough…to keep the younger generation glued to movie house seats. Sam Newfield directed with a good sense of melodramatic action, and it is Mr. Buck himself who gives the stand-out performance. The jungle fellow is a right natural actor.” [2]

As of 2014, Tiger Fangs holds a two and a half star rating (5.1/10) on IMDb.
