Jane, How You've Changed, 5 June 2011
Author: wes-connors from Earth

Jungle king Johnny Weissmuller (as Tarzan) rescues sexy screaming Shirley O'Hara (as Athena) from some hungry felines. She turns out to be part of a group of similarly sexy White Amazon women in leopard skin one-piece suits. Apparently, the animals wanted their fur back. Soon after carrying Ms. O'Hara home to Amazon queen mother Maria Ouspenskaya, Mr. Weissmuller and cute son Johnny Sheffield (as Boy) welcome beautiful blonde Brenda Joyce (recast as Jane) into the wilds of Africa, after the her character spent two films nursing soldiers during World War II...

Ms. Joyce notices how much young Sheffield has grown, is politely mum about Weissmuller's expanding waistline, and has a hug for "Cheeta" the chimp. As it turns out, Harry Stephenson (as Guy Henderson) and the archaeologists bringing Joyce back to the fold become interested in finding the recently visited (by Weissmuller) Amazon kingdom. Villainous Barton MacLane (as Ballister) gets greedy and Sheffield's life is threatened. "Tarzan and the Amazons" is fairly typical for the series, with lovely background scenery and Ms. Ouspenskaya's women being the main attractions.

***** Tarzan and the Amazons (4/29/45) Kurt Neumann ~ Johnny Weissmuller, Johnny Sheffield, Brenda Joyce, Maria Ouspenskaya
