A Loincloth Fill-In
2 December 2007 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

An African expedition intends to collect animals for zooery, which angers animal rights advocate Glenn Morris (as Tarzan). Eleanor Holm (as Eleanor aka Ellen) adds femininity to the casting expedition; of course, she catches Mr. Morris' eye. Morris, like Johnny Weissmuller, was an Olympic star; he looks great in the loincloth, but doesn't play either the Weissmuller or Edgar Rice Burroughs version of the "Tarzan" character very well. Ms. Holm was also an athlete; and, although she swims and cavorts wonderfully, she can't lift herself out of a shallow pool! Hedda Hopper (as Penny) and Cheetah (uncredited) provide support (and are supported). "Tarzan's Revenge" provided filmgoers with second-rate Tarzan fare, during a nearly three year wait between Weissmuller movies.

*** Tarzan's Revenge (1/7/38) D. Ross Lederman ~ Glenn Morris, Eleanor Holm, Hedda Hopper
