Nach seiner Rückkehr widmete sich Otto Schulz-Kampfhenkelder medialen Verwertung seiner Abenteuer. Sein Expeditionsbericht "Rätsel der Urwaldhölle" erschien 1938 als Buch, die Ufa lancierte seinen gleichnamigen 90-minütigen "Großfilm deutscher Forschung", der wochenlang in Kinos von Flensburg bis München lief. Der "Illustrierte Filmkurier" widmete dem Streifen 1938 sogar eine Titelgeschichte.

After returning from abroad, Otto Schulz-Kampfhenkelder dedicated himself to the media exploitation of his adventures.  His expeditionary report, “The Mystery of the Jungle Hell” first appeared as a book in 1938 and the manuscript was promptly snatched up by UfA, which ran a 90-minute “Grand Film of German Research” of the same name and which played in theatres from Flensburg to Munich for weeks.  Even the Illustrierte Filmkurier dedicated a title story to the film that same year.

THERE IS A NEWSREEL ALONG WITH THE FILM, JUST AS GERMAN AUDIENCES MIGHT HAVE SEEN WHEN THE MOVIE WAS FIRST SHOWN (except this newsreel may not be contemporary to when the film was released).

DVD-R IS IN GERMAN WITH HARD-ENCODED DUTCH AND FRENCH SUBTITLES (except for the Newsreel).
