In the first sequel to Tarzan, the Ape Man, Harry Holt returns to Africa to head up a large ivory expedition. This time he brings his womanizing friend Marlin Arlington. Holt also harbors ideas about convincing Jane to return to London. When Holt and Arlington show Jane some of the modern clothes and perfumes they brought from civilization, she is impressed but not enough to return. Tarzan wrestles every wild animal imaginable to protect Jane but when he disallows the expedition from plundering ivory from the elephant burial grounds, it is he who takes a bullet from Arlington's gun. Jane eventually believes that Tarzan is dead but he is nursed back to health by the apes. As Jane and the returning expedition are attacked by violent natives, we wonder if Tarzan can rescue them yet again. Written by

The only appearance of the two-piece Jane costume, subsequently replaced by a long one-piece costume in all the sequels due to pressure from the Hays Office as they felt it was too revealing. See more »
When the lioness appears in front of Jane, she screams to call Tarzan. Then Tarzan, who is swimming, gives his yell with the mouth uncovered/covered of water. See more »
I don't have much to add to the comments of the previous writers (and in particular TroyAir's excellent review) other than the nude scene, though not in a sexual situation, is still among the most erotic scenes in cinema probably for that very reason. This is my opinion as well as many of my male and female cinemaphile friends.
