What kind of hide is this?
It's mink. And don't ask me what I had to do to get it.
The same thing the mink did.

Muscular jungle king Gordon Scott (as Tarzan) helps a quintet of private plane passengers who crash after a flock of birds causes mechanical failure. They get mixed up with nasty hunter Robert Beatty (as "Tusker" Hawkins) and savage Africans, who are eager to sacrifice white humans. You've seen much of this before, but this time it's in color. Color is a nice addition to the "Tarzan" franchise. There is no "Jane" or "Boy" in this one, but you get two attractive women, brunette Betta St. John (as Diana Penrod) and blonde Yolande Donlan (as Gamage Dean). They admire Mr. Scott's physique as he showers in a waterfall, and he tears up a mink coat to "help" make then some suitable shoes. As usual, "Cheta" finds the alcohol...
***** Tarzan and the Lost Safari (4/12/57) Bruce Humberstone ~ Gordon Scott, Betta St. John, Robert Beatty, Yolande Donlan
