This "Tarzan" episode was originally released theatrically in 1965,but it was in fact the pilot episode for the series which stars Ron Ely as the ape man. Not a bad premise,but its a good start for what it would become later on as a two part episode that was shown on the Tarzan series which ran on NBC(from 1966-1968). If you check out the theatrical version,you can catch a youthful Nichelle Nichols(during her pre Star Trek days,but basically a year before Star Trek went on the air)as queen of a warrior tribe.
