Charlie Chase, through a waste of celluloid, comes to believe that he is descended from Tarzan. Then he gets conked on the head, and dreams he really is Tarzan. Yes, this is truly NATURE IN THE WRONG.

A spoof of Tarzan might have worked as a decent short -- there is plenty to spoof. But this short takes too long getting to the central idea, and is full of the unfunny stuff one tends to find in Pete Smith specialties, like talking animals, and a family of taking apes. It's not surreal -- it's just not funny. And Charlie Chase in a Tarzan suit? Um...not aesthetically pleasing. There is an attempt to make some humor out of the patently lousy rear projection, but this is better done in WC Fields' Fatal Glass of Beer.

Hope his other talking shorts (now starting to be shown on TCM) are better than this. The silent ones are truly funny and imaginative.
