First talkie (sort-of) movie serial, First Tarzan yell!
14 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ben Burgraff's critique of TARZAN THE TIGER is so well done that it would be difficult for anyone to comment further on the subject of the movie itself. I for one totally agree with his assessment. I love old serial "Cliffhangers" and this one is a true historical film classic. However, there are numerous companies that produce old movies on VHS tape and DVD for home entertainment, and some produce better tapes and discs than others. Some are perfectly produced with great definition and some are so fuzzy that they appear to dissolve while trying to watch and make sense of them. There are also some that unwittingly destroy a good movie because they are so paranoid that someone might copy the movies that they themselves had copied... So they superimpose graffiti (aka junk logos, etc.) in the viewing area of the subject, thus rendering it so annoying that most viewers can't stand to watch it. The Alpha Home Entertainment DVD Production of this particular 15 chapter serial is perhaps the worse produced thus far. "ALPHA VIDEO" graffiti appears in text with their flag logo at the upper right corner of every opening chapter and through the credits, and at various places in the film, in addition to the close of the film, rendering annoying and worthless. The Alpha Video Production DVD also appears to have been VHS video taped from television because there are those horizontal lines appearing at various places in the disc, and then from VHS to disc. I've seen a sharper image version of this same movie some time ago... It was produced by another DVD producer, I believe it was a Canadian company, and it had no graffiti to deface the movie or to distract one's viewing pleasure. I am among those that would like to see the entire movie from start to ending exactly as it was produced, without graffiti (aka logos, aka signs, aka symbols and text that was not originally in the movie). IF Alpha Video was around in 1929, and are the original and fully legal 1929 producers of TARZAN THE TIGER, then they should do with the film what they wish... But they are not the original producers, and it is a sin to ruin such historic movies the way they are... out of fear of piracy, or perhaps they are being over zealous... Who knows? At any rate, you may want to ask who produced the movie before you buy it... and if its produced by an individual, or a company, or a corporation, or an institution that ruins good movies by superimposing personal graffiti or "logos" on them, then you might want to pass on it until someone comes out with a quality production of your favorite film. And, please don't buy pirated movies... Pirated films are unlawful and they do hurt the industry.
