Cheetah! What is it?
Cheetah must be seeing things. What is it, Tarzan? What is it?
Uguna. Strange sound in sky. Big. Far off.
I don't hear anything.
Tarzan hear. Cheetah hear. Elephant hear.
Now I hear it. Like a great wind coming.

TNYA is a fun film to enjoy, especially if you are a fan of the series. Metro could make cheap films look expensive because of their wonderful production values. TNYA is no exception. It looks great, even though it's only a 71-minute "B" film. Metro relied heavily on the international market for the TARZAN series, and WW2 had cut most of that off, so Metro cut the budget and let the series go after this film.
Still, as I said earlier, TNYA is a fun movie and is loaded with terrific character performers.
With the change in scenery for Tarzan and family, we can only wonder of what all MGM could have done if things had been different at the time.
And, by the way, a weighted dummy took the dive. There's no way Metro would have permitted Johnny to do the stunt. I'm sure he didn't want to, and besides, none of the principal cast set foot in the Big Apple for the production of this film.
