An exciting little Tarzan-movie
23 September 2001 | by (Salzburg, Austria) – See all my reviews

Lex Barker`s fourth appearing as Tarzan is one of his most entertaining. He is my all-time-favorite in this role. His Co-stars are very convincing here. Dorothy Hart as Jane remembers on the good old "Maureen O´Sullivan-Days" and she is the most likeable Jane Barker ever had (Barker has a different Jane in any of his five Tarzan-movies). The performer of Rokov (Charles Korvin)is a notable villain and even young Tommy Carlton already is a good actor. The story goes straight ahead and has some quite exciting moments. With his wild jungle-tribes, cannibals, crocodiles and lions this little movie is a pleasure for all Tarzan-worshippers around the world.
