Romantic, solid outing of the series
17 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

Johnny Weissmuller and Maureen O'Sullivan continue their sensual pairing as Tarzan and Jane with Johnny Sheffield as Boy in tow. Tarzan and Jane have several romantic interludes in this film, some subtly and others not.

The most vivid includes Tarzan presenting Jane with an orchid, then sweeping her off her feet and twirling her in a circle, continuing with some sensual talk and tactile coziness, and ending with a simple kiss with Jane resting comfortably in Tarzan's arms.

O'Sullivan visually appeals as Jane in a shorter hemmed mini-dress revealing quite a bit of her cheesecake. Weissmuller, though no longer slender, still maintains a buxom and beefy commanding figure in his loincloth.

In addition to their loving relationship, Tarzan and Jane also must address their roles as surrogate parents to Boy and confront the problems brought on by his youthful curiosity of civilization beyond the jungle.
