Nice entry as the Weissmuller series winds down., 9 June 2007
Author: petick

This is a nice, if not unspectacular penultimate film of the Weissmuller Tarzan series. The adventure element is somewhat lacking in parts of the film, but Patricia Morison does a fine job as the central figure of the hunting expedition.

Surprisingly, this film delights in playing up the love and romance between Tarzan and Jane in a couple of scenes. Unfortunately such scenes that defined the Maureen O'Sullivan films were sadly not included for the better part of the Brenda Joyce entries as Jane as the producers chose to focus on Tarzan's interaction with other beautiful females.

Perhaps this was added because Johnny Sheffield's presence as an almost adult Boy would confuse new audiences as to whom Jane's mate actually was!! Still, there is one scene where Jane asks Boy's help as she playfully is physically subdued by Tarzan after Jane tickles Tarzan's chest in seeking an apology. When Boy attempts to interfere, he is booted off the raft by Tarzan.

And while Cheta is still overused in these films, this is still a respectable entry in the series.
