He Ought To Be In Pictures
28 January 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The Bomba The Jungle Boy Pictures series was running out of gas by the time Safari Drums were telling Johnny Sheffield that a movie company was in the neighborhood shooting. Safari Drums adds a mystery element to the proceedings here.

Now granted the Bomba series was intended for juvenile audiences, but just by looking at the cast list you should be able to tell Sheffield and Commissioner Leonard Mudie just who was the individual who killed an archaeologist and is hiding with the film crew. I think most of the juveniles in 1953 could have told as well.

Emory Parnell is the producer/director who wants and stages unusual action shots, Barbara Bestar is the film star, Paul Marion is the cameraman and Douglas Kennedy is their guide. Things never go quite right for Parnell in this film.

Bomba's adventures are getting a bit thin here.
