Cheetah is shown drinking from 3 of four bottles in Jane's suitcase and then throwing each of those three bottles away. But after the alcohol bottle is discarded, a medium view of the suitcase reveals all four bottles still in their carrier in the suitcase. See more »
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.

High budget MGM film is one of the most entertaining in the lot...
If you're a Tarzan fan of the Johnny Weismuller films, this is one you can't afford to miss.
Even the first twenty-two minutes of jungle scenes are briskly paced and amusing while JOHNNY WEISMULLER, MAUREEN O'SULLIVAN and JOHNNY SHEFFIELD encounter downed pilot PAUL KELLY and hunter CHARLES BICKFORD after their plane crashes. The plot is the usual simple one--Boy has been taken from the jungle and taken to New York City by circus exploiters--and Tarzan's mission is to recover him in time for a happy ending.
No expense has been spared in this big budget production from MGM. Although Cheetah gets lots of prime time, especially during the first half of the film, the supporting cast includes a lot of recognizable players such as Virginia Grey, Chill Wills, Charles Lane and villainous Cy Kendall. In this sixth film of the series (the last one featuring Maureen O'Sullivan as Jane), there's lots of monkey business involving tricks and stunts by a team of smart elephants worthy of any circus revue.
And thanks to director Richard Thorpe, the script plunges ahead easily to become one of the most entertaining in all the Tarzan films featuring Johnny Weismuller. At the fadeout, all is well in the jungle again after some amusing adventures in the Big City--including Tarzan's plunge from the Brooklyn Bridge.
Highly recommended for fans of the series.
