The list includes all the movies with different actors in the role of Tarzan. Among them, Elmo Lincoln, Herman Brix, Lex Barker, Buster Crabbe, Johnny Weissmuller, Gordon Scott, Ron Ely and others. In my opinion, the best actor in the role of Tarzan was Johnny Weissmuller, the best actress in the role of Jane was Maureen O'Sullivan and the best actor in the role of Johnny was Johnny Sheffield.
Tarzan will be 100 years old in 2014. You can have a great centennial celebration watching as many Tarzan films as you can in 2014.
