The Jungle Cruise, 1959
It's time to look at a few classic scenes from the good old Jungle Cruise!
I like this unusual view, possibly taken from the back of the boat, and looking behind rather than forward. See the ripples of the boat to the right? A snaky snake looms overhead (snakily), while crocodiles guard some temple ruins.
Man, I used to think that the hippos were SO realistic. And you know what? They still look pretty good. The wiggling ears is a nice touch.
Now I realize that my fishing boat looks drab and boring because it doesn't have a pyramid of skulls. Notice how they gleam in the tropical sun! Time for a trip to "Just Skulls", a store at my local mall.
