"Tigers are running amok in the jungles of Damang, disrupting Allied communications and killing local natives. Frank (Bring `Em Back Alive) Buck is called in to rescue the situation.
On his arrival at the MacCardle Rubber Plantation Buck discovers the natives chanting about `chindags' - evil humans who assume the form wild animals, in this case tigers. After a little investigation Buck concludes "The japs, or the `monkey people,' as they call `em, have possessed the souls of the tigers."
TIGER FANGS was directed by Sam Newfield, who is probably most famous for THE TERROR OF TINY TOWN (1938), a western with an all-midget cast. Apparently he worked pretty fast; TIGER FANGS is one of sixteen movies he directed in 1943. Frank Buck is a credible actor, although it had to be because of his fame as a animal collector that he's in this one. Another kinda recognizable face is that of Duncan Renaldo, who played the Cisco Kid in movies and on television in the late `40s and early `50s.
TIGER FANGS is an entertaining little movie with the good guys triumphant in the end. Buck had a reputation for treating his animals humanely, so parents won't have to worry about scenes of animal abuse or mistreatment. There are some racists attitudes, like the above quote, that might make this one unsuitable for children in some households."

"Having discovered Frank Buck through the short-lived TV series "Bring "Em Back Alive," I'm thrilled to unearth anything I can about the original "Indiana Jones!" This is a true classic about a true classic! Campy good excitement - wish I was there."
