Tarzan Goes to India (1962)
Tarzan Gets Outsourced
Poor Jock Mahoney gets saddled with "Jai the Elephant Boy" in this snorefest. Worse even is that this is the follow up to one of the best Tarzan's, "Tarzan the Magnificent". No spoiler here, one look at the cast list tells you that Leo Gordon is the main bad guy. Dumb Jock, looking all of about 130 pounds, after picking off one baddie with his bow and arrow, inexplicably drops his bow and sneaks up another armed baddie he easily could have skewered with an arrow. I suppose his reasoning was to trade this baddie for the captured Jai. But even the elephant knew Leo would blow this guy away to get to Tarzan. Leo gets dispatched an hour in and what follows is a herd of elephants going left to right... right to left ... left to right ... you get the picture. Worth watching once if you are a Tarzan fan but don't let this be the first one you watch!
Cheyenne: West of the River (1956)
This episode is a remake of The Charge at Feather River. I knew something was up when I saw Clint Walker with a hat that seemed too small for him. It took about a minute to figure it out (which maybe says more about me than I want to admit). He was dressed to match up with footage of Guy Madison. Poor Clint gets stuck in obvious sound stage "outdoors" while any real outdoor shots are Guy Madison. Still it was fun to watch plus featured old favorites Lane Bradford and Harry Lauter. Don't believe the IMDb listing of L Q Jones still playing Smitty. His character disappeared after a few episodes. I gave it an 8 instead of 10 because of the obvious phony outdoor shots.
This edit is for pepe January 2007. Clint Walker got stuck wearing a hat that was too small for him so that the editors could match up his new footage with the old footage of Guy Madison in Charge at Feather River. Look at any of the actual outdoor shots and you will see that "Cheyenne" is suddenly not as muscular as he is in the closeups. In the first episode of Cheyenne, Clint Walker is dressed to match up with footage of Errol Flynn in Rocky Mountain. At least in that one, they filmed the outdoor scenes outdoors at Vasquez Rocks. Not where Rocky Mountain was filmed but at least outdoors.
