The Second Jungle Book: Mowgli And Baloo
The film was adapted for the screen by Bayard Johnson and Matthew Horton. Mowgli is a year-old boy who has been raised deep in the jungle of India by his animal friends: the wolf pack, Baloo the bear, and Bagheera the panther. Mowgli also has enemies in the jungle: Shere Khan , the vicious tiger who killed the boy's father; and the Bandar-log , monkeys that are hated by all other animals of the jungle. As Mowgli lies helplessly on the ground, Baloo, Bagheera, and the wolf pack arrive to rescue him. The next morning, Mowgli wakes up and goes hunting with the wolf pack.

One of the reasons to make a movie is to tell a good story, which makes it all the more mysterious that so many storytelling opportunities are lost in "Rudyard Kipling's Second Jungle Book: Mowgli and Baloo. But it has a promising premise: Boy is raised in the jungle by animals, lives with them as an equal, then falls afoul of evil civilized men who want to exploit him. Can you imagine a film involving a boy, animals and the jungle? I can. It would involve a lot of storytelling imagination, since there would presumably be no dialogue. And it would be hard to photograph the animals convincingly.
