Incisive documentary about the MGM Tarzan films...
3 August 2012 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Everything you ever wanted to know about the Tarzan films, and then some. It gets a little too detailed at times, going over familiar territory once too often. Robert Osborne, Rudy Behlmer and Johnny Weissmuller, Jr. give lots of background talk while we're treated to stills and scenes from the series featuring Johnny Weissmuller as Tarzan and Maureen O'Sullivan as Jane.

Interesting that Maureen O'Sullivan had a huge dislike for Cheetah, the talented chimp who stole many of the scenes and had a real affection for Weissmuller. She distanced herself from the chimp whenever possible because he was jealous of her, according to the lady herself who talks about her own experiences while making the films.

A good many of the comments come from Johnny Weissmuller, Jr. who stated that his dad was fond of Maureen although they never had a romantic relationship. His dad was the one who chose Johnny Sheffield from among 400 boys who auditioned for the role of Tarzan's son. Stories of how he trained Sheffield to swim and get over his fear of the water make for interesting tidbits.

Well done commentary is just a tad bit in need of some tight editing. Otherwise, it's a satisfying behind-the-scenes look at the film and how Edgar Rice Burroughs came to write the stories in the first place.
