I Liked it!

Being a fan of Tarzan, this movie is my personal favorite. In "Tarzan's Revenge", this turned out to be a very interesting adventure. Here you have a hunter from the USA with his family and fiancee. They go to Africa to catch game for a zoo. They run into Tarzan and Cheetah. In the normal movie it's Tarzan and Jane. But there's no Jane, there's Eleanor(Eleanor Holm, the swimming legend from Brooklyn) who is the fiancee of Nevin, the game hunter. She is also spotted by a king who wants her part of his harem. When Eleanor falls in a mudhole, Tarzan pulls her out, only to put her back in the mudhole. Her fiance is a total wimp. He thinks that Eleanor is suffering from the effects of the jungle. But she has more fun with Tarzan than Bevin. My favorite part of the movie is when Tarzan and Eleanor have their swim. Watching a movie when athletes are involved is a amazing show of strength and active intakes. This movie is classic, and it's recommended for all ages. This is for Tarzan enthusiasts.
