The movie was filmed during the Fall of 1965 with Mike Henry experiencing so many traumas (Chimp bite, infections, etc) that by January 1966 he quit the Tarzan movie series. The movie was shoved to the side for two years to work on the 1966 TV series as well as the release of "Tarzan & The Great River" (1967) that young actor Steve Bond (The Jungle Boy) had aged from 12 to 15 by the time the movie was filmed and released for the big screen.

A geologist and his newborn son go into the jungle and come up missing. Years later evidence turns up that the boy, now age 6, survived and is living in a dangerous territory so Tarzan (Mike Henry) is asked to go in and get him. While this is going on a couple brothers (Rafer and Edward Johnson) are battling to take over their tribe but one of them has a crooked heart. Many people consider this film to be the final entry in the long-running series that started back at MGM with TARZAN, THE APE MAN. This final entry certainly isn't very memorable but there are a couple interesting aspects that will make fans of the series wan to check out. What we've basically got is a remake of TARZAN FINDS A SON, which was one of the better MGM entries. This version here has Tarzan and the boy becoming friends while a wide range of events are going on around them. I can't say I bought into their relationship as it was pretty hard to care about either of them. Tarzan, as in the previous two entries, isn't all that entertaining and the boy himself is someone we never really get to know. It also doesn't help that Henry and the boy (Steve Bond) have zero chemistry together. Of course, Henry was so bland in the part of Tarzan perhaps they did have something going but it just didn't come across on the screen. Once again Henry just doesn't work as Tarzan as he doesn't bring any life, passion or energy to the role. Apparently he was somewhat sick at the time this film shot so perhaps this has something to do with it. His three stints as Tarzan were all filmed together so he might have just really given up before anything started. Bond doesn't get too much to do as the boy either. The Johnson clan are the most interesting aspects in the film as Rafer was a Decathalon champion and it should come as no shock that the producers tried to exploit this by throwing in a rather long sequence where the two brothers do battle to see which one is the strongest and will get to lead their clan. The Brazil footage (filling in for Africa) looks very good and the cinematography is another major plus. Overall this is a decent entry in the series but there's still not enough here to make it worth viewing unless, like me, you want to see all of the original movies.
