Jungle Book (1942)

Jungle Book is a 1942 independent Technicolor action-adventure film by the Hungarian Korda brothers, based on a screenplay adaptation by Laurence Stallings of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book, about a wild boy who is kidnapped by villagers who are cruel to animals as they attempt to steal dead king's cursed treasure.


  • I am of the jungle. Their lair is my lair. Their trail is my trail. Their fight is my fight.
  • Quiet, you grinning black shadow! Quiet, grey brother. This is not our kill.


  • What is the book of life itself but man's war with nature? The struggle between village and jungle!
  • We're going to have a marketplace, and a temple, and a mighty city. Aye, we'll have all that if we can beat the jungle. But have you in your hundred years seen man win a war with nature?
  • Verily, you would have all of India in your picture. Nay, you would have the book of the jungle to read in my eyes.


  • It's Out of this World!
  • I'll show you the mysteries--the wonders of the jungle's savage heart!
  • THE JUNGLE FIRE! A whole world ablaze as the jungle strikes back at those who would violate its secret code!
  • JEWELLED SECRET CITY..guarded by the jungle's fiercest denizens!
  • MOWGLI, HALF-BOY, HALF WOLF . . . armed only with a knife and the love of a girl, meets the challenge of Shere Khan, the Killer Tiger!
