An action-packed serial with a handsome, hunky, articulate Tarzan!
This is an excellent adaptation of the book, Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar. Frank Merrill's classically handsome features and lithe, muscular body make him a fine Tarzan visually; his vine-swinging and elephant riding are unparalleled in the movies; and the script allows him to be the refined, educated Tarzan of the books, at least intially (until he loses his memory.) This is an exciting serial, full of action and with great sets and scenery. The only question is: why a tiger? But the mistake is a charming one, since it echoes the one ERB himself made in initially putting tigers in Africa himself.
