This movie, released in 1961, contains a good example of the Stockholm Syndrome; however, the term was not coined until 1973. See more »

Goofs

At the end of the film, Tarzan is swinging from vine to vine, and one shot has him swinging over a river. A cable is visible behind the trees, and his "vine" is attached to the cable, much like the way a zip line works. See more »

Tarzan The Greatest !!!
13 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is 'real action, adventure' (the way it was meant to be) !!! Gordon Scott WAS Tarzan (no one has approached his characterization of this 'mythic figure'). Once again, we see an actor with 'a background' (i.e. 'life experience'); bringing it to the big screen (see Steve Mcqueen,Charles Bronson, Lee Marvin, etc...). No 'method acting' here - just solid performance. A must see for action/adventure fan's !!! Mr. Scott was a military policeman, judo expert, laborer; among other things ! This sort of acting is fast disappearing (as more 'emotional' actors/directors appear). Gordon Scott did not 'leave' this role - the producers of this 'genre' felt a more 'kinder/gentler' (see 'civilized'), Tarzan was needed (oh, brother !!!). Mr. Scott went to Europe to make 'sword and sandal' epics (Hercules, Machiste, Goliath, etc..). What a pity he wasn't given more A-list roles. He was quite the man !!!
