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 was only young when the series was shown, but I have fond memories of watching it with my dad and sister, and thinking how exciting it all was. If only TV shows today were like it, the world would be a better place.
