Tarzan Milks A Moose
18 July 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Charley Chase and Muriel Evans want to get married, but her mother, Nora Cecil, insists that only a true blue-blood, like the effete Carlton Griffin, is a fit mate. Desperate, Charley writes an ancestry-tracing firm. They announce his only known ancestor is Tarzan of the Apes. Muriel is thrilled, and reads the Edgar Rice Burroughs book to him. Charley is enthused, and tries to emulate Tarzan, knocks himself out, and dreams of being Tarzan, married to Muriel, when his banker, a gorilla played by Charles Gemora, of course, shows up for dinner.

It's a marvelous travesty of the MGM Tarzan films, with Charley chatting with a lion whose brother is MGM's Leo, and lots of stock footage of the African veldt. There are lots of nice animal gags in this one. Although it's not one of Chase's best shorts, there are plenty of laughs.
