Tarzan (Lord Greystoke), already well educated and fed up with civilization, returns to the jungle and, more-or-less assisted by chimpanzee Cheetah and orphan boy Jai, wages war against poachers and other bad guys.
Tarzan's cousin comes to Africa in hopes that Tarzan will help him secure a fortune in diamonds essential to England's military security. The cousin is immediately killed off by his guide Rokov who persuades Edwards to impersonate the cousin. Joey (Boy's substitute) was used by natives as crocodile bate until Tarzan rescued him.

Tarzan's Savage Fury was one of the only Tarzan films to make reference Tarzan's noble background. At least since the Johnny Weissmuller films started I don't recall another movie mentioning Tarzan being the Earl of Greystoke.
But it's a false Greystoke played by Patric Knowles who with his guide Charles Korvin comes calling on Lex Barker and Dorothy Hart as Jane. What is family for, but to call on them for aid. The real Greystoke was killed at the beginning of the film and Knowles takes his place. The object is to get to a tribe which has a fortune in diamonds and uses them in their animist religious rites.
Although it's never said, Korvin's accent is a broad hint that there is a foreign power behind these proceedings. The Cold War at last comes to the Tarzan series. With RKO under the control of Howard Hughes would you expect nothing less?
The cast acquits themselves well and now it seemed that finally black people were playing the African natives in the series for good and all time now.
