Tarzan's Revenge (1938)

** (out of 4)

Winning a gold medal in the Olympics must have been pretty nice in the 1930s as not only did you get the gold but you also got fame and a role in a Tarzan movie. This time out it's Glenn Morris who takes over the role of Tarzan as he must constantly save a rich girl (Eleanor Holm) who falls into traps, gets attacked by lions and eventually kidnapped by a evil priest. TARZAN'S REVENGE is pure "B" movie non-sense and if you're expecting the quality of the MGM films then you're certainly going to be disappointed. It's clear that the producers of this film really didn't care about quality as it seems they were just happy to have the Tarzan rights, looked at what MGM was doing and just tried to copy it. It really does seem as if the producers would be happy with no flubbed lines so that they could quickly edit the material together and get it released into theaters. There's really nothing horribly wrong with this picture it's just that nothing's very good either and in the end we're left with a rather bland and unmemorable film. Morris really isn't all that good as Tarzan. He certainly has the physical look down but the speech and mannerisms simply aren't there. Holm isn't too bad in her part and we get familiar faces like Joe Sawyer and Hedda Hopper in supporting roles. The stock footage is the typical stuff you'd expect from a movie like this. The biggest problem is that there's just no energy to anything you're watching.
