This is a cheesy jungle adventure movie, one of many that became popular in the 1950s in which a group of attractive women run around in the jungle with spears and very little clothing chasing men. An opening voice-over by Mother Nature tells us that she and Father Time created everything we know, but they have made some mistakes, including a topsy turvy experiment 10,000 years ago when they made all the women of the village of Wongo beautiful and the men brutes, but they made all the women of the neighboring village Guna not beautiful while the men are all handsome. When the women of Wongo see one of the men from Guna, they all become love sick. They go to the dragon temple and when they return it looks like all of their men have been killed by some marauding ape men, so they hike to Guna to find some men, but the ugly Guna women drive them off. The young bachelors of Guna are living in the jungle for a month without any weapons as part of their tradition for becoming men, and the women of Wong find it easy to catch them all and take them back to Wongo.

Early on we see a Burmese Python on a branch overhead. The king of Wongo sees it and drops into a defensive position. Later, when the women of Wongo are capturing the men of Guna, a man is hiding above them on a branch, but then he sees a Burmese Python on the branch, he gets scared and drops to the ground where he is captured. They used the same python and the same branch for both scenes, but that's the least of the problems with this cult classic.
