Bomba the Jungle Boy, film 5:

Forbes (Morris Ankrum) and his daughter Jean (Ann E.Todd) have joined forces with Martin (Douglas Kennedy) to sell them to zoos and the like. Much to the dismay of Bomba, who frees the lions every night they are sleeping - so much so that Forbes and Jean, who has of course fallen for Bomba, already want to give up and their native bearers desert them. However, Martin wants to push on regardless, even if that means he has to kill Bomba ...

Then the three of them encounter a Massai warrior being attacked by a lion, and when Martin tries to shoot the lion to save the warrior, he accidently kills the native instead ... but figures he can still use this to his advantage, persuading the Massai chieftain that the lion has killed the man and that he needs his warriors as new bearers to succeed in his lion hunt after all. The chief agrees, only to then found out it was actually a bullet that killed the warrior, his own son. He wants to take bloody revenge, but Bomba persuades him to let him take care of the whole thing and drive the whites off Massai territory within three days.

So Bomba, speaking the language of the animals, tells the lions to leave the territopry, locks Martin ina cage, and steals the white hunters' weapons. However, the chief has in the meantime changed his mind and now tells his warriors to drive the lions towards the white hunters' camp for maximum havoc - which is much further than Bomba ever wanted to go, so he rushes to the camp ... but almost too late, Martin has already been attacked and killed by a lion who now threatens Forbes and Jean, and Bomba has to wrestle the lion to at least save these two - and defeats the animal, of course.

When the Massai arrive at the scene, they see that revenge has been exacted and let Forbes and Jean leve in peace.


So-so jungle adventure, reusing some of the stock footage of Massai warriors already used in Bomba, the Jungle Boy. In all the film has little to go for it and is hardly memorable, but it's also less silly and/or annoying as many other jungle films of it time, so if you're at all into (cheap) jungle flicks, you'll probably find yourself mildly entertained.
