Ask Ken Beck

Elephant boy Sabu was WWII tail gunner


Dear Ken: In the 1940s there was an Indian child actor named Sabu, who starred in The Jungle Book and The Thief of Baghdad. Is he still living? 

Sabu was the son of an Indian mahout or elephant driver, so he proved a natural to star in a 1937 British film Elephant Boy. He made about 20 films, including Black Narcissus, between 1937 and 1964. He became an American citizen in 1944 and joined the U.S. Army Air Force, where he served as a tail gunner during several dozen missions in the Pacific. He died young in 1963 of a heart attack at age 39.
