Bognor Regis Observer – Friday, 21 May 1954

PAVILION, SELSEY. "THUNDERBIRDS" starring John Derek, John Barrymore, jun. Mona Freeman and Gene Evans, tells the stirring story of the National Guard. America's citizen army which becomes the backbone of the forces in time of war. Specifically, the film follows the Fighting 45th, the intrepid unit that blazed its way from its training base at Fort Sill, Okla. to the bloodstained battlefields of Sicily, Salerno, Anzio, and the south of France. It cut the Siegfried Line, mopped up Nuremberg, and went on to liberate the 32,000 living skeletons of the Dachau concentration camp. "ROAD TO ZANZIBAR " is one of the greatest of the "Road" series, starring Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, and Dorothy Lamour. Bing and Bob portray two fairground workers who find themselves out of a job and trudging through Africa. They meet the beautiful Lamour, who persuades them to take her on a safari into the jungle. They fall into the hands of a savage tribe and their one hope of survival depends on Bob winning a wrestling match with a huge ape. "BUFFALO BILL IN TOMAHAWK TERRITORY," with Clayton Moore in the title role, tells the story of a band of renegade white men who plan to cheat Sioux tribesmen out of land on which they have good reasons to believe there is gold. Posing as redskins, the crooks find themselves up against Buffalo Bill, who is anxious to help in the vindication of his Indian friends and stops at nothing in order to come to their defence.
