Personal Quote:

I really couldn't get work as an actress because of Jane. You get stereotyped, at least in the business at that time. [But] the memory of being Jane, and the fact of being Jane, has allowed me to be a part of motion picture history, and a part of all the lives of all the people who have enjoyed Tarzan. I am so grateful for that.

Trivia:

Eve said she took the role of Jane because her son James, then 6, loved Tarzan movies, but it proved to be a very costly career move. See more »
