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

Originally intended as a TV series; three episodes were re-edited into a movie after all three networks (this was before all the cable channels) rejected the series. See more »

Ah, yes, my friend, but to whom is it fatal?

George Scott's Tarzan is very much like Superman and this "film" is probably modeled on the old Superman TV show. This is 3 episodes of a planned series edited into a movie and it works. I think the use of 3 directors and stories gives the film more structure and diversity of tone than the typical films from that period.
The 1st story details evil white hunters hurting animals and meeting Tarzan. Pt 2 has the hunters hunting Tarzan like game and the 3rd has Tarzan getting revenge for his tribesman friend (played by Scatman Crothers!). Its cheap and stagey, but well shot and the action is good. There's the usual inserts of safari footage but its good footage of cute and exotic animals. The treatment of the black characters is well done. Jane and Boy are barely in this but the cast is good. Gordon Scott is really a lovable hero, so it all comes off well.
Minus color, effects and a multimillion dollar budget, this is comparable to today's superhero films. Modest fun.
