Bomba the Jungle Boy informs ne'er-do-well lion hunters that the lions were meant to roam the jungle freely. Since they pay him no attention, Bomba must save the lions (and Jean, incidentally).
The tall Masai warrior standing behind the tribal chief when he and Bomba discuss the wounded lion is played by Woody Strode, who would later become one of Hollywood's first recognizable African American character actors, with prominent roles in such memorable films as Spartacus, the 1956 remake of The Ten Commandments and The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance.
You know, Dad, I've had the strangest feeling for the past few minutes that we're being watched from cover.
