Description: Held back from release for nearly a year, The Female Jungle finally received bookings on the strength of its star, Jayne Mansfield. In fact, Jayne plays the relatively minor role of a trashy nympho; the emphasis is on neurotic police dectective Lawrence Tierney. Circumstantial evidence suggests that Tierney is responsible for the murder of a gorgeous film star--and since he was drunk at the time of the killing, even Tierney suspects himself. For a while, the number one candidate for the gas chamber is slimy gossip columnist John Carradine, but he's a bit too obvious to be culprit. Without giving away the ending, it can be noted that the murderer is played by a member of the film's production staff. Female Jungle was later reissued as Hangover.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
