Pith-helmeted Buck is a Great White Hunter who here (unlike the real one from the 1940s) works out of the Raffles Hotel bar in Singapore during the 1930s fighting all kinds of bad guys in pre-war Malaya.

US adventurer Frank Buck lives in colonial Singapore. He spreads his jungle time between his compound home, the legendary Raffles hotel, where he parties with HH, the sultan of Johore, and wherever adventures take them. Many adventures ensue, often less dangerous because of the animals then on account of criminals, Nazi agent von Turgo and sleezy sycophantic Bundhi. Written by
As H.H., Ron O'Neal drives several expensive cars, including a one of a kind 1934 Phantom II Rolls Royce (Chasis No. 15-RY). This vehicle was especially deigned for the Maharaja Jodhpur as a hunting car. The license plate reads BUNDI, not to be confused by the character of Bhundi played by Harvey Jason. See more »
I didn`t realise it untill a few minutes ago that Frank Buck was a real life big game hunter . However I don`t believe for a moment that the real life Frank Buck would have recognised himself in this dismal American show that owes more to 1930s cliffhanger serials than it does to real life events . Every week Frank Buck ...sorry " Frank Buck " gets involved in spy rings , smuggling operations and all other types of adventures in Singapore in the late 1930s , and this is the major problem I had with the show - During the time BRING`EM BACK ALIVE is set in it would have been swarming with British servicemen guarding the colony of Malaya against the upcoming Japanese threat . And in every episode we see many servicemen in the background but the thing is they`re always American servicemen ! I don`t ever recall seeing a British serviceman during the entire run of the show . What an arrogant piece of nonsense , it`s as if the makers are saying " If it wasn`t for us Malaya would be speaking Japanese "
