Storyline

The scenario follows the book closely. Tarzan's son Jack (Korak to the apes) is kidnapped from England by Tarzan's old enemy Paulovich. He escapes into the African jungle with the help of Paulovich's trained ape Akut. There he meets Meriem, a white girl held by Arabs. He frees her and falls in love. Meriem (who is really an heiress) is sought by Paulovich. Tarzan arrives with Jane at his African estate and intervenes. Written by Ed Stephan <stephan@cc.wwu.edu>

Only extant print impossible to follow.
19 April 1999 | by (Blacksburg, VA) – See all my reviews

Only extant print is feature edited from serial, but missing and deteriorated stretches make it impossible to follow. Some scenes fade to near black, others jump wildly. For die-hard Tarzan completists (like myself) only.
