IT’S BUSTER’S BIRTHDAY ON BETA MAX TV!!!
Today, we have 2 of his action films. The first, from 1942, takes place in a familiar locale – the jungle! In JUNGLE SIREN, Crabbe plays a soldier assigned to help the free French forces build an airstrip in the jungle. While there, he and his pal met a female Tarzan-type and together uncover a Nazi plot to start a native uprising. Then, Crabbe appears as another of his popular characters – Billy The Kid. In BILLY THE KID WANTED (1941) – the first of a series of Billy The Kid films, Crabbe plays good guy Billy who, with his 2 pals (Dave O’Brien, Fuzzy St. John), team up to help homesteaders caught up in a scheme run by a fake land company.
Happy Birthday Buster from your home for B-movies… and action Crabbes! Beta Max TV!!!
