The Lion Hunters Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Bomba the Jungle Boy--aka Johnny Sheffield--makes his fifth screen appearance in Monogram's Lion Hunters. Bomba's task this time out is to stem the activities of crooked animal hunters Forbes (Morris Ankrum) and Martin (Douglas Kennedy). The villains have set up camp in the land of the Masai, who consider lions to be sacred. Forbes and Martin pay no attention to local native customs, going so far as to kidnap Jean (Ann Todd) to prevent Bomba from interfering with their ecological plunder. Needless to say, the bad guys are hoist on their own petard by film's end. As was the case in previous Bomba efforts, most of the action footage is culled from the 1930 documentary Africa Speaks. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
