Tarzan (Lord Greystoke), already well educated and fed up with civilization, returns to the jungle and, more-or-less assisted by chimpanzee Cheetah and orphan boy Jai, wages war against poachers and other bad guys.

During African location filming with Miki Carter for this mostly studio bound film, Gordon Scott got along well with some natives involved in the movie. A Masai warrior nicknamed him "Mtu Ule Na Panda Mitu Minegu" (Warrior Who Climbs Tall Trees). See more »
If you grew up watching Johnny Weismuller in those action packed programmers, this is just painful to watch. There are a few scenes of waterfalls, etc. that are nice but in the older films they used stock footage of wilderness along with wild African animals stampeding and attacking which in itself evoked a sense of danger utterly missing here. The pacing in the earlier films was quick and exciting while here, everyone sleepwalks through the entire movie with wooden acting by all involved. Action scenes are bland and suspense is nil. Gordon Scott is great eye candy but stinks up every scene he is in. Granted, it is not as noticeable as it could have been since all the other actors are doing the same thing. I hated seeing a dynamic character actor like Woody Strode stuck in this awful flick. He looked like he hated it too. I guess we all have to make a living.
