Tarzan and the Cheesecake, 15 April 2007
Author: petick

This entry re-introduces Jane in the form of the beautiful Brenda Joyce, and of course, Tarzan has a delightful twinkle in his eye upon seeing his mate for the first time in two years in her jungle mini-dress. Joyce does not disappoint in her wholesome, athletic and leggy portrayal of Jane which she would continue in for several more Tarzan films.

Even before reuniting with Jane, Tarzan has an encounter with much more cheesecake than he could imagine. He rescues a beautiful Amazon named Athena, in a leopard print mini-dress, from a panther. In her attempt to escape, Athena hurts her ankle. Tarzan, ever the gentleman (wink, wink), sweeps the leggy Athena off her feet and carries her for miles back to her hidden valley of Palmyria, where there arrival is greeted by dozens of other Amazon beauties.

I've always thought that scene of Tarzan carrying Athena was one of the loveliest and intimately romantic of the Tarzan films, portrayed by Johnny Weissmuller and Shirley O'Hara.
