Trivia

The impassioned speeches Dr. Lazar (Edgar Barrier) delivers to the Leopard Tribe about protecting their cult and homeland feature gestures, facial expressions and vocal inflections clearly intended to remind 1946 audiences of Adolf Hitler. See more »

Goofs

When Boy finds the Leopard Man costume in the cave he tries it on. As he picks it up the steel claws attached to the arms fall onto the rock near where he is standing. The sound heard is that of an empty wooden or fiberglass box. It can he heard two or three times as the claws bounce against the prop. See more »

Tarzan and the Leopard Woman (1946) **1/2

TARZAN AND THE LEOPARD WOMAN (1946)

A bizarre Tarzan offering featuring a freaky cult of worshippers who dress up in leopard skins with claws and attack people, taking out their hearts to sacrifice to their god! The high priestess of the pack is the pretty Acquanetta (CAPTIVE WILD WOMAN) who was never a good actress at all but is probably used to better advantage here than she ever was before here. Tarzan becomes aware that something's not right when the attacks are blamed on real leopards. A very strange chapter indeed.

**1/2 out of ****
