WE HAVE DECIDED TO EXPAND THIS
FRANK BUCK WAS THE CROCODILE DUNDEE ON STEROIDS FROM FROM THE 1930 THROUGH 1949.
Frank Howard Buck [known as Franck Buck], born on March 17, 1884, in Gainesville, Texas and died on March 25, 1950 of **lung cancer, was a hunter and "collector of wild animals," as well as a movie actor, director, writer and producer Known as Frank is known for his books, including the famous " Bring 'Em Back Alive" and his 1930s and 40s jungle adventure movies including: Wild Cargo, Jungle Cavalcade, Jacare, Killer of the Amazon, of which many included staged "fights to the death" between formidable beasts.
[ **THE MOST IMPORTANT PORTION OF THIS
STORY IS THE FACT THAT FRANK BUCK. A HEAVY SMOKER WHO EARNED
As a Professional Outdoor Adventurer Filmmaker, Frank would travel to Malaya, India, Borneo, New Guinea bringing back exotic species that he sold to zoos and circuses. He would eventually acquire the nickname "Bring 'Em Back Alive" for the innovations he created to deliver live healthy animals by using traps and snares in ways that prevented injury to the animals, and would always accompany his animals aboard ship to make certain they were well treated, By refusing to sell his animals to those whom did not have an impeccable reputation for animal care, his reputation grew.
When war correspondent Floyd Gibbons suggested that Buck write about Buck's animal collecting adventures, Buck collaborated with Edward Anthony on Bring 'Em Back Alive, which became a bestseller in 1930 which inspired other adventure books including: "Wild Cargo" [bestseller 1932] , "Fang and Claw", "Jim Thompson in The Jungles", "On Jungle Trails", "Animals Are Like That" and his autobiography, "All in a Lifetime" in 1941.
[Buck's autobiography was published in 1941. Buck
wrote Fang and Claw, On Jungle Trails, All In A Lifetime, Tim Thompson in the Jungle, and
Jungle Animals in collaboration with a radio dramatist, Ferrin Fraser.
Frank would be featured in comic books and his contributions to the "Saturday Evening Post" and "Colliers", along with his own radio program, made him a house hold name which provided additional profits from appearing with "Ringling Brothers, Barnum & Bailey Circus" and the Clyde Beatty Circus.
[Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus made Buck a lucrative offer to tour as their star attraction by entering the show astride an elephant in 1938, . He refused to join the American Federation of Actors, stating that he was "a scientist, not an actor." Though there was a threat of a strike if he did not join the union, he maintained that it would compromise his principles, saying "Don't get me wrong. I'm with the working man. I worked like a dog once myself. And my heart is with the fellow who works. But I don't want some --- union delegate telling me when to get on and off an elephant." Eventually, the union gave Buck a special dispensation to introduce Gargantuan the gorilla without registering as an actor.]
Franks was president of Frank Buck Enterprises,
Incorporated, Jungleland, Incorporated, and was the subject of the a popular Frank
Buck Club. Never missing a means to promote both his commercial endeavors and his persona,
he appeared in motion pictures, including "Bring 'Em Back Alive" (1932),
"Wild Cargo" (1934), and "Fang and Claw" (1935), "Jungle
Menace", "Jungle Cavalcade" (1941),
(1942) aka "Jacar, Killer of the Amazon", "Tiger Fangs" (1943) and
"Africa Screams" (1949) which starred "Abbott and Costello in
Frank Buck would briefly hold the position of "temporary" director for the San Diego Zoo on June 13, 1923 until he signed to a three-year contract. This position only lasted several months due to clashes with the zoos' directors over how the animals were to be caged and treated.
