Female Jungle is the very first film to star Jayne Mansfield. The actressdidn't think much of a film that was shot in two weeks and lasts no morethan one hour! In spite of all that, this little B movie has all theflavour of a 50's pulp novel. 'Hangover' was the original title - and gave more clue to what happens inthe film. The story evolves around the murder of an actress, a drunken copwho becomes the prime suspect, a gossip columnist and the cop's voluptuousneighbor. Cult cast with Laurence Tierney who will appear some 40 yearslater in 'Pulp Fiction', and Jayne Mansfield whose first 'starring role'would lead her to go back selling pop corn and giving piano lessons,although that was not to last very long. Interesting as a film noirrarity, or as a period piece.
