Johnny Sheffield

After making his film debut at age 8 in “Tarzan Finds A Son” (1939), Johnny never looked back. Seven more hit Tarzan films followed before Johnny became a star in his own right with a series of popular “Bomba” jungle adventures, the first of which was “Bomba, The Jungle Boy” (1949). In 1955 the Bomba films came to an end with “Lord Of The Jungle”. In 1962 the Bomba films were re-edited into a 13 episode TV series titled, “Zim Bomba”.
