Tarzan Triumphs (1943)

*** (out of 4)

War propaganda 101 as Nazi's take over a lost city but Tarzan shows up to kick their ass. This probably should have been called Triumph of Tarzan's Will but the politically incorrect humor works just fine for this film. The story is pretty stupid and the German bashing stuff might not go over well today but the film remains a lot of fun due in large part to the animals. Cheetah and the various other monkeys really steal the show here as they're giving a lot of fun things including the one scene where Cheetah steals a bunch of food from three monkeys. Weissmuller is in great form again and Frances Gifford is entertaining as well. There's plenty of nice humor (if politically incorrect) and the action is great. This first RKO Tarzan ranks right up there with the best from MGM, although it does get a little long winded at the end.
