Trivia

The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

adventure in the bayou, tarzan vs. tarzan
3 July 2018 | by ksf-2See all my reviews

As the film opens, the narrator explains the swampland behind the credits, and how they must defend against fires. "Johnny" (Weissmuller) has just come back from war, home to the bayou and to "Toni" (Carol Thurston, who was actually 16 years younger than Weissmuller). Distractions for both Johnny and Toni... Virginia Grey is the rude, snooty outsider Janet, who is chasing Johnny, and local boy Mike (Buster Crabbe) has been after Toni the whole film. Another plot point here is that Johnny keeps having war-time flashbacks, and that has been delaying him from getting back into the ship piloting. Things happen quite fast, once they get going... it's only 69 minutes, so there really isn't much time for character development. Everything happens, all at once. and the storyline is kind of all over the map. Antics ensue. It's passable adventure. Directed by William Pine, who had co-founded prolific Pine Thomas studios. Story is ok. Picture quality is pretty bad... it seems to be a copy of a copy. Written by Daniel Mainwaring, who had written TONS of crime stories and adventure novels.
