Tarzan Joins The Allies
29 May 2009 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

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.
