I wallow in me. I enjoy every syllable I say and every gesture I make. I indulge myself a full one hundred percent. And you take my advice, dear Jane, and you do the same thing, and enjoy your beautiful time on Earth. Turn yourself into a god, and then you will not have to look for another.

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.
