Joe Bonomo ~ Perils of The Wild

Posted on Friday, March 25th, 2016 by John Wood

A look at a rare still of the great Joe Bonomo in action in “Perils of The Wild” which was a serialized version of The Swiss Family Robinson (1925). Directors loved Bonomo because his great strength allowed him to perform stunts and do all kinds of things that looked impressive on film (like lift a whole crew of pirates!) Joe played the Father Frederick Robinson and actually broke his leg during filming. Hard to say if this still was actually in the movie or just messing around since the film is unfortunately lost.
