Summoned by an Indian princess, Tarzan travels to India where hundreds of wild elephants are in danger. A company is building a hydroelectric dam and the contractors have only a few weeks to finish the job. The building of the dam will flood the valley surrounded by mountains. There is one pass through which the elephant herd can escape but that is being closed. Tarzan comes up against an old nemesis, Bryce, the chief engineer. Bryce undertook a similar dam project in Africa and had a penchant for shooting elephants. It's up to Tarzan to organize the move before Bryce manages to close the pass. Written by

When Jai snares Tarzan in the trap and Tarzan is hanging upside down, Jai brings his elephant close but out of reach of Tarzan. The camera switches to Tarzan at one point and he reaches out and steadies himself on one of the elephant's tusks which is quite close, then switches back to a wider view and the elephant is again out of reach.

Jock Mahoney's first outing as Burroughs' Tarzan makes for a nice, enjoyable movie. Though like many sixties adventures it is aimed at a younger crowd, accounting for a rather irritating kid sidekick, it is much truer in tone to Burroughs' work than most of what preceded it. Mahoney is a good Tarzan, portraying him as intelligent and articulate as the written version, although a bit to mellow. This is not the savage Tarzan of the books. The Indian scenery is wonderful, the story, while fairly simple, is well done, and most of the acting is good for it's genre and time. The elephant roundup is spectacular. All in all, one of the better Tarzan movies of those i've seen so far.
