Utter silliness
10 September 2011 | by (Toronto, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

OK. This is Hollywood jungle adventure at its best or worst depending on how you wish to view it. TCM certainly does seem able to come up with not only many great old films but also silly nonsense such as Tarzan and the Lost Safari. Bad acting, silly lines, laughable sets (obvious fakes), silly Saturday afternoon serial music, and fractured English for Tarzan and the natives were but some of things that brought laughs. The natives are called savages (it was the 50's after all and vestiges of colonialism and racism lingered). One supposes that the dance sequence after the capture of the members of the lost safari (a plane went down) was a highlight. But the ugga bugga stuff was also just laughable. Add to it the usually assortment of white baddies and the utter predictability of it all and well it was an amusing diversion on a Saturday morning while writing a report. And you wish that the savages would just burn them all at the stake.
