Goofs

When Bomba teaches David how swing on the vine, they push off from the tree limb with David on the left and Bomba to his right. However, when the camera angle changes to a closeup of both swinging side-by-side, David is now on the right of Bomba. In this view, it would have meant that they tangled their vines and physically could not have swung together. See more »

A quite rare, enjoyable movie
18 March 2002 | by (Derby, England) – See all my reviews

I recently obtained a copy of The Lost Volcano, which is a quite hard to find movie.

This is one of a dozen Bomba the Jungle Boy movies starring Johnny Sheffield after he finished playing Boy in the Tarzan movies.

The movie was quite enjoyable considering the low budget with Johnny playing a much younger version of Tarzan. His language is similar to Tarzan's too. This movies gets better as it moves along and the best part of the movie is the impressive eruption at the end. This is actually stock footage from One Million BC (1940), although we don't see any monsters from this movie. This is the second time Johnny Sheffield has encounted footage from One Million BC, as he encounted some of its monsters in Tarzan's Desert Mystery (1943).

I enjoyed this movie a lot and is worth seeing if you get the chance, as it is quite rare.

Rating: 3 and a half stars out of 5.
