Trivia

In the course of the first season's shooting, Ron Ely, who insisted on performing his own stunts, sustained seventeen different injuries. These included: singeing his arms and legs running through a burning village, being bitten in the forehead by a "tame" lion (in a later fight with the same lion, Ely was bitten on the lower left thigh), falling down a hill and ripping the skin off the tops of his feet, falling twenty-five feet off a vine and separating his shoulder, falling off another vine and breaking his other shoulder, fracturing three ribs and spraining both wrists.

ELY WAS THE GREATEST TARZAN OF THEM ALL.
16 November 2000 | by (CARDIFF,WALES) – See all my reviews

What a fantastic and action packed show this was.Ron Ely for my money was the best Tarzan ever (certainly the most articulate)and this series should be resurrected forthwith for modern TV audiences to enjoy.In the UK this hasn't been seen for many years.Certain episodes stand out in my mind even now as some of the best I have seen in any action adventure series;episodes like THE PEARLS OF TANGA, THE ULTIMATE COMPUTER and ALEX THE GREAT with guest star Neville Brand as adventurer Alex Spence(which packed more fistfights into its 50 minute running time than any other show I have ever seen)This was wonderful stuff and I maintain that this was the definitive Tarzan and unfairly one of the most neglected.
