Did You Know?

Trivia:
Jane's absence was explained in a letter saying that she was visiting relatives in England. Maureen O'Sullivan was sick of playing Jane, but her absence probably had more to do with the fact that the franchise had switched from MGM to RKO, and O'Sullivan was an MGM contract player.See more »

Wonderful entry with a beautiful Frances Gifford, 17 June 2007
Author: petick

This film fantastically carries on the series without Jane, who is away during World War II at the film's time. As such, the lovely Frances Gifford of Jungle Girl plays the beautiful lead as Zandra, whose people are being overrun by the Nazis.

Her chemistry with both Johnny Weissmuller and Johnny Sheffield's Tarzan and Boy respectively is thoroughly engaging, and you believe at times in the film that both Tarzan and Boy were developing crushes on Zandra. Tarzan even shares in the delights of all male viewers at the pleasure of seeing Zandra in Jane's jungle mini-dress and even shares a playfully cozy jungle swim with her.

Such a propaganda film would never fly today, as it was well warranted back then for film and media during the war to rally round the flag against the Nazis. Likewise, the conclusion of this picture includes a satirical poke which Mel Brooks would make in many of his productions as he felt it was better to comically make fun of the Nazis rather than take them seriously.
