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
Frank Buck's compound was recreated from original photographs of the real Frank Buck's Katong headquarters and featured pictures of his actual parents hanging on the wall, as well as the flag of his home state, Texas. See more »
I first watched this show when I was stationed in Korea in 1982. I loved it and that it was in the same spirit as the Indiana Jones movie. Bruce Boxlietner does a great job bringing Frank Buck to life. I would love to see it released on DVD.
