Only extant print impossible to follow., 19 April 1999
Author: Steve Brown from Blacksburg, VA

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.
