Goofs

Tarzan's knife has the ability to appear and disappear between shots. In one scene, he throws his knife at a hunter on the ground, hitting him in the back. A moment later, he goes to attack another man, and lo and behold, the knife has returned to its sheath. A second later, when the shot changes, the knife is gone again. And, after he defeats the man in the tree and runs off to save everyone else, the knife is back in its sheath again without Tarzan going to retrieve it from the man he threw it at! See more »

Tarzan's Jungle Turf
3 August 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Tarzan And The Huntress finds Johnny Weissmuller battling yet another trapper coming on to his jungle turf to take some animals back for the zoos of the world. Especially for those countries whose zoos were depleted after the late war.

The twist is that the villain is Patricia Morison, an accomplished an independent feminist in her own right whose many talents also include flying a plane. Tarzan would never allow Jane that kind of freedom. The film is a curiously anti-feminine one.

She directs the operation to capture the animals as she is also a female Clyde Beatty, but the heavy villainy is left to John Warburton and Barton MacLane. They also get involved in tribal politics in the area where chief Charles Trowbridge is killed and his son thought to be also killed by a nephew looking for big payoff from the trappers.

Patricia Morison would shortly get the role of her life, but on the stage. She never rose above playing slinky temptresses on the screen in B films and some of them pretty dreadful. However in two years she created the role of Lilli Vanessi in Kiss Me Kate. Who could have suspected what a great soprano she was from the parts she played in films?

Tarzan And The Huntress is one of the better Weissmuller Tarzans that RKO did. And as usual Cheta was the wild card and I mean really wild.
