Produced during the war, the plot was very anti-German. The film was directed by Austrian born Wilhelm Thiele, credited as William Thiele. See more »
When Tarzan is fighting the Nazis, he rips the magazine off a machine gun and tosses it to the ground. A moment later, one of the Nazis starts climbing to the top of the building to use the gun, and you can see the magazine still there. Yet when the Nazi arrives at the gun, the magazine is missing again. See more »
Tarzan Triumphs marks the Edgar Rice Burroughs character moving from the premier studio of Hollywood MGM, to the more economical RKO. The results certainly show in this film.
In 1943 the eternal jungle man joins the fight against the Nazis when paratroopers descend on an isolated city called Palandria. What Rommel was doing wasting valuable troops over there, mystifies me, it certainly wasn't anywhere near the North African theater, but the Fuehrer must have had a plan.
The Nazis of course behave in their usual brutal manner and that's enough to bring Tarzan to the aid of the occupied city. Especially since Frances Gifford makes it a personal request. With Jane gone to aid the Allied cause I guess Tarzan's feeling a little antsy.
It's real dated World War II propaganda, but Tarzan Triumphs is still a lot of fun.
