Green Hell is a 1940 American jungle adventure film directed by James Whale starring Douglas Fairbanks Jr. and Joan Bennett. Green Hell was given a lavish production by Universal, which built a massive indoor jungle set on a sound stage. An Inca Temple 125 feet high, 225 feet wide, and 45,000 square feet in area were constructed. Having spent big bucks on a film which turned out to be a critical and financial disaster, Universal used the set again, recycling it into an Egyptian temple for The Mummy's Hand (1940). Whale made only one more completed film after this, a 1941 World War II romantic melodrama They Dare Not Love, starring George Brent, improbably cast as an exiled Austrian prince fighting the Nazis.
