Storyline

Tarzan deals with the villainous Schroeder, who is illegally collecting animals for zoos, only to be menaced by Schroeder's hunter brother Sikes, out for revenge, who teams up with greedy trader Lapin in a hunt for human game...Tarzan himself. Re-edited from 3 episodes of a never-shown TV series, with studio action intercut with location and wildlife footage. Jane has little to do. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

A soft spot in my heart
27 December 2004 | by (Seattle, Wa) – See all my reviews

Gordon Scott made an excellent Tarzan, he brought an interesting flair to the role, that was almost a compromise between the smart Tarzan of the books and the ignorant Tarzan of most of the films. In this film, he actually picks up a book and tries to read, but still speaks in a broken manner, however he is still full of wisdom that comes from life in a dangerous jungle. This actually one of the better films, despite some negative publicity from "purists" (read Weissmuller fans). It is entertaining, the jungles all look real, and the double point of anti-poaching/anti-grave robbing is especially poignant. If Tarzan really did exist, that would be the kind of life that he would lead.

Excellent ****/****
