Forget Weissmuller
11 November 2001 | by (Rhode Island) – See all my reviews

Anyone who thinks Johnny Weissmuller is what Burroughs Tarzan is all about doesn't know anything about Tarzan. While Johnny looked great in the role, he did not portray Tarzan the way ERB created the character. And unfortunately it has taken a long time to try to bring the true Tarzan to the movie and TV screen. Joe Lara looked more like most artists drawings of the Apeman and the lost civilizations was what ERB wrote many stories about! What Epic Adventures did wrong was do stories about Tarzan's search for his "inner self" which was a bad idea. Also they brought too much fantasy into the series. Anyone who has read the Tarzan novels know Tarzan visited lost civilizations of Romans, Greeks, prehistoric worlds, Opar with Queen La, etc. The silent films were a lot more true to ERB's vision than anything done since sound movies came into being. Also Jane should have been brought into the series. And whatever happened to the so-called second season and Xavier DeClie stepping in as Tarzan (a bad move in my opinion) and Jane being introduced? Fact is the pilot TARZAN'S RETURN was a lot better than the actual series that followed. Instead of Tiemba, they should have introduced Muviro, the leader of the Waziri and Tarzan's friend in the books and kept Paul D'Arnot in the stories. A return to the Weissmuller "Me Tarzan You Jane" apeman now would be a worse move if another live action Tarzan movie or TV show is produced.
