Goofs

The 'crocodiles' in the jungle pond scene are American alligators only found in one place in the world; Florida, and never in a jungle in Africa. You can tell the difference by the broad snout (crocodiles have very narrow snouts). See more »

Garland Steals the Film
11 March 2012 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Killer Leopard (1954)

** (out of 4)

The eleventh and next to last in the series has American actress Linda Winters (Beverly Garland) traveling to Africa to locate her husband who skipped town after embezzling some money. She can't make her way through the jungle so Bomba (Johnny Sheffield) agrees to help her but he also must fight a deadly leopard that has been chewing on the locals. I guess you have to give writer-director Ford Beebe a little credit since he was able to pump out two Bomba films a year but at the same time I do wonder if he actually re-wrote each screenplay or if he just had a format that he would slightly change. In this eleventh film we get the story of the husband who is running off. We then have Bomba and the actress following them. We then have a third party following them. Throughout the 71-minute running time we bounce back and forth between the three stories, which does very little except add boring dialogue as they talk about things "they're going to do" yet the series, probably due to its low budget, was nothing but talk and very little action. This film here is at least mildly entertaining thanks to Garland who manages to turn in a good performance and her tight bathing suit isn't another plus. The funny thing is that there's this strange flirting going on between her married character and Bomba, which was certainly a first in the series and these scenes are without question the best. Garland and Sheffield actually have some nice chemistry together. The biggest problem is that everything else is deadly boring and lacks any real energy or passion. The highlight of the film is one of the funniest moments I've seen from any non-comedy. For some reason Garland decides to go swimming in a river when Bomba jumps in. He notices that on one side of the river there are some crocodiles and on the other a tiger, which means they're trapped. Then, Bomba notices a water buffalo and just the way this scene is mixed in with the stock footage is hilarious. It's too bad rest of the film didn't contain this level of camp but KILLER LEOPARD is certainly going to be just for Garland fans.
