Trivia

The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

Bayou Tarzans
5 January 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

In between the Tarzan and Jungle Jim series of films, Johnny Weissmuller got to this item with one of his fellow film Tarzans. Swamp Fire casts Weissmuller and Buster Crabbe as a pair of bayou locals who are rivals for Carol Thurston.

Weissmuller saw war service in the Coast Guard while Crabbe basically sat World War II out. It's mentioned that the Coast Guard wouldn't take him, but there are other branches of the service. The fact that he apparently didn't do any service should have set off alarm bells with his issues.

But Weissmuller has a few of his own. He lost a craft in the Pacific and that upsets any man who makes a living on the water. But that doesn't bother Thurston nor rich New Orleans society woman Virginia Grey who eyes Weissmuller like a slab of beef at the butcher shop.

Crabbe gets really annoyed that Weissmuller's now got two women panting after him and he can't get to first base with Thurston once Weissmuller returned. It sets up all their conflicts for the remainder of the film.

Although Buster Crabbe did many roles besides Tarzan in his career, this was it for Johnny Weissmuller who had gotten too old for Tarzan. Other than the gimmick of the two Tarzans in bayou heat, there's not a whole lot else to recommend Swamp Fire.
