Abbot, Costello, Buck and Beatty

Posted By on March 29, 2011

This is an extremely rare photo………….. Frank Buck and Clyde Beatty were to appear together for the first and only time in a movie called “Africa Screams”, They co stared with Abbot & Costello. This photo was taken just before the shooting began at Republic Studios, produced and directed by Edward Nasour. In this photo it seems like Buck is telling the fellows about his wild animal adventures………………Yes I almost had him!…….. Frank Buck’s motion picture credits……….”Bring-em Back Alive”,”Wild Cargo”, “Fang $ Claw”, “Jungle Menace”, “Jacare”, “Tiger Fangs” and “Jungle Calved”. Clyde Beatty stared in “Big Cage”, “Lost Jungle”,”Darkest Africa”, “Africa Screams”, “Perils of the Jungle”, “Ring of Fear”…………NOT BAD FOR A CIRCUS GUY.
