Sadly there is no getting away from a comparison with the much better Johnny Weissmuller and Maureen O"Hara versions of Edgar Rice Burroughs' "Tarzan" stories - and the suitably chiselled former decathlete Glenn Morris is only marginally more eloquent than the chimpanzee! An American family head to Africa to catch wild animals to populate their zoo. Once there, their daughter attracts the attention of local bigwig C. Henry Gordon ("Ben Alleu Bey") who decides that she would be a suitable addition to his already burgeoning harem. Former American Olympic swimming champion Eleanor Holm takes the "Jane" role, and is frankly not much better than her loincloth clad hero. The story is routine enough - and there are some nice touches by way of underwater photography but the animals have by far the better lines and scenes.
