I would like to set the record straight for two members of the cast of this charming and engaging serial. The part of "Queen La of Opar" was played by Kithnou (aka Mlle. Kithnou) a Hindu actress, and not by Lillian Worth as stated on the video cover and in Buck Rainey's book "Serials and Series: A World Filmography, 1912-1956." As was the custom in many silent films, the title card which announced the first appearance of an important member of the cast included the name of that actor. When you watch this serial you will see that the part of Queen La is played by Kithnou.
And so it is with the character, "Mohammed Bey." Buck Rainey lists Frank Lanning as the actor who portrayed this role. In the actual film however, it is clear that "Bey" was played by the actor Paul Panzer.
Viewers who are used to Johnny Weissmuller and other's loincloth portrayals of Tarzan may be surprised to see all the animal skins that Frank Merrill wears in this role. He looks amusing to say the least. And his interpretation of the famous "Tarzan yell" is more like the drawn out exclamation of a Swiss mountain climber..."Yah! Yah!" I laughed each time he did it. Still, he is stoic and muscular and has an aura of strength about him.
Natalie Kingston, as Jane, is spectacularly sexy and desirable! When I saw her topless swimming scene I re-wound the tape at least three times! In fact, I loved every scene she was in, clothed or not. Not to be missed!
