Laurette Luez, who plays the sarong wearing Lita, was born in Hawaii and enjoyed a 20 year career as a supporting actress and pin-up girl, as famous for being a Hollywood socialite as she was for her acting career. She retired from the screen in the mid-50s, and died of "undisclosed causes" in 1999. See more »

Bomba the Jungle Boy is back again and in this film is stopping diamond smugglers who are posing as scientist. Ho hum. If you've seen one Bomnba film, you'd essentially seen them all. FUN FACT: The great Woody Strode makes an early film appearance here playing an uncredited native.
