A most enjoyable movie, 18 April 2013
Author: headhunter46 from Madison, Wisconsin, USA

I watched this movie today. I found it on Netflix. I had forgotten how enjoyable this series was. If one can keep their mind on the fact this was made long ago without computer graphics and fancy special effects it is quite enjoyable. I still find myself wondering how on earth they filmed the parts with the real wild animals. That could not have been easy and they made it look so real.

Some of the background is obviously not real but this movie is such fun I barely noticed. A couple times I even chuckled at it.

I enjoyed this so much I started the second movie on this disk, the New York adventure and stayed up way past my bedtime.

I have determined to rent every Tarzan available and remind myself of when life was simpler and more enjoyable. Ten stars because it made me feel to watch this once again.
