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 »

Hollywood Comes To Bomba
10 March 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This entry in the Bomba The Jungle Boy series has Johnny Sheffield with two problems. Movie star Beverly Garland has come to Africa trailing her worthless husband who has embezzled all kinds of money and the cops also want him. But Garland wants to make it right. But while she's out hunting him, there's a Killer Leopard on the lose and he's on the prowl for any and all concerned.

The husband is Donald Murphy and he's hired guide Barry Bernard to go into the interior to get some diamonds out for a little illegal smuggling. He really isn't interested in being Mr. Movie Star's husband any longer. Still Garland has a mission and she's got Bomba along for help.

Watching Garland and Murphy I was thinking of two show business marriages that of Fanny Brice and Nicky Arnstein and that of Doris Day and Marty Melcher. The writers could have been inspired by either or both of those.

Killer Leopard is an above average Bomba picture even though Sheffield is clearly getting too old to be a convincing jungle boy.
