Cheetah! What is it?
Cheetah must be seeing things. What is it, Tarzan? What is it?
Uguna. Strange sound in sky. Big. Far off.

Tarzan hear. Cheetah hear. Elephant hear.

I have the movie and have watched it several times, but what I watch for is not the humor and not the plot. Johnny Weissmuller 'dives' off the cable supports of the Brooklyn Bridge. This is not a stunt double. This is not a special effect. This is an Olympic athlete 'diving' off the Brooklyn Bridge. I would score it an easy 9.5.
Get it. Watch it. Enjoy.
