Hambone


Recommended Posts

Good Morning -

 

Here is the TCMDatabase link to The Boob. According to the article there written to coincide with this month's salute to William A Wellmann, the young African-American actor went by the name of "Ham Bunn"

 

"This carefree attitude does allow The Boob to amble onto the thin ice, as in the characterization of Ham Bunn, a sleepy-eyed, African-American child who aids Peter's crime-busting crusade. Though there is nothing patently offensive in Ham Bunn's actions, he exemplifies the subtle dehumanization of minorities that Hollywood too often engaged in -- underscored by the fact that the actor's name is not even listed in the credits."
