The movie takes place in 1910, but at one point, James Parker sings the English hymn "Jerusalem." While the words were written by William Blake as the preface to his epic poem "Milton" in 1804, the music was not written until 1916 by C. Hubert H. Parry. See more »
Jane, do you know what he wants? What this ape wants?

Bo Derek is the most beautiful Jane, but the worst actress of those who have played the role.
Richard Harris hams it up as usual.
The film was based around Jane and the nudity. Did you expect anything else from John & Bo Derek? BUT: Miles O'Keeffe made a spectacular Tarzan, probably second or third of all the actors; Johnny Weissmuller and possibly Gordon Scott were better. Bo is gorgeous. The jungle scenery was some of the best ever for a Tarzan picture, including the escarpment! The story up to when Jane encounters Tarzan rang true (mostly) with the books. The cinematography is excellent.
The film is a valid result of what you would get if the sexual aspects of the story were over-emphasized. Taken in that regard, it's pretty well done.
