Great film about a great fraternity
7 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a youngster I always idolized Buster Crabbe: I would see his Tarzan films and wish to be as fit and capable as him, and get the beautiful girl. I used to watch his Captain Gallant television series weekly, I nearly thought to join the Foreign Legion -- wisely I waited and joined the US Navy later (After 30 years - in the Navy -- I think it was wise decision. I got as much adventure as Captain Gallant could have given me.

Buster Crabbe was a real member of the Sigma Chi Fraternity. Years later, as an Alum of the University of Iowa (Alpha Eta Chapter) of Sigma Chi, I was honored to take lunch with him at the chapter house. He was a real gentleman and posed for pictures with the Iowa Brothers.
