Distant Drums 1951 – Again

This film was on Television last week here in England – and it was just as good as it always is. My wife saw it for the first time and really liked it.

    A fine adventure film! As a youngster, I first saw it on release back in the 1950’s and have managed to catch up with it on a couple of occasions since. Thanks for the memories.

      I like Distant Drums and like you saw it as a youngster – it still looks good today. I remember at the time that this was the first knowledge I had of the Sub Tropical part of the USA namely Florida. Incidentally as you will know the underwater scenes were done at Silver Springs in Florida which is still there. It was used a lot for the Johnny Weissmuller Tarzan films and both he and Johnny Sheffield – who played Boy – were often there. They would fly in from Hollywood in those days – quiet a long way – to do those action scenes in the water.
