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

After years of producing Tarzan films for the big screen, producer Sol Lesser decided that a television series might be in order. This film which did get some limited release on the big screen was intended for the small. You can clearly see where the commercial breaks were intended.
It's also a step backward in terms of recognizing the emerging Africa which later Gordon Scott films did. Besides Scott the cast included Eve Brent as Jane and Rickie Sorensen as Boy.
The two stories are only connected by the fact that the villains are brothers. In the first Tarzan stops a trapper from taking animals from his turf the jungle. He turns him over to the authorities. In the second story the first villain's brother challenges Tarzan to a jungle duel where Scott will be hunted like jungle prey. The most neophyte film fan will recognize The Most Dangerous Game as the source for the plot.
That one actually could have and in fact was partially the source of a later big screen Tarzan film, Tarzan's Greatest Adventure. That one happens to be one of my favorites in the Tarzan series. This one is just a pale imitation.
