This movie has little connection with the 1932 original. It does, however, have lifted footage (tinted to more-or-less match the color), including obvious footage of Weissmuller's vine-swinging. Miller is not once called Tarzan in the movie, and his yell is also lifted Weissmuller. The elephants who wreck the pygmy village are lifted/tinted from the original, but the "pygmies" (real in the original) were kids from Fairfax High School in Los Angeles. Costumes are left over from "King Solomon's Mines" so that more stock footage could be lifted. And the crocodile fight is taken from "Tarzan and his Mate" Written by

From 1959 until 1981 this film reigned as champion of the "Bad" Tarzan films. It then relinquished it's title to the 1981 movie of the same name with Bo Derek swinging on the vine. Denny Miller is Tarzan and borrows the yell from the Johnny Weissmuller films. Of course a must see for any Tarzan film fan. AMC ran it during their Tarzanathon a while back. Miller was not the worst Tarzan ever he just happened to be in a bad picture about the legendary ape man. Take a look if you want but it helps if your a real Tarzan fan.
