American actor Robert "Smoki" Whitfield entered films in 1948, at a time when opportunities for black performers were still extremely limited. When he wasn't playing Pullman porters or family servants, Whitfield could usually be found in heavy "African" makeup as a tribal chieftain or medicine man. He was a regular in Monogram's Bomba the Jungle Boy series, playing a friendly native named Eli (in the first Bomba, however, he was called Hadji). Smoki Whitfield made his last film appearance in 1955.
