Riotously funny, madcap Tarzan parody
9 November 2003 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Sandrich is remembered now for several of the best Fred and Ginger movies (and for fathering one of TV's most successful comedy directors) but he first really made his name directing RKO talkie shorts like the Oscar-winning (and wildly ribald) So This is Harris, also with James Finlayson. I saw this entry in the series produced by the Masquers club at Cinesation and it's nearly as good as So This is Harris, a nutty, fast- paced sendup of explorer documentaries that soon turns into a Tarzan parody with the various males (including Finlayson) attempting to woo the female Tarzan in between drinking gags and double-entendres.
