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 »
When Cheetah sneaks up on the Commissioner and Doctor Lazar, he sprays the Commissioner with the soda water from the bottle on the ground. You see him hit squarely in the face with the water, yet right after he gets up from his chair, his face and clothes are dry. See more »

One of Johnny Weissmuller's most enjoyable Tarzan films.
Local authorities are positive that leopards are responsible for a series of fatal attacks on caravans travelling the jungle route from Zambesi, but Tarzan remains unconvinced. The ape man is right, of course: the real culprits are fanatical members of a leopard cult, led by beautiful high priestess Lea (the gorgeous Acquanetta) and native doctor Ameer Lazar (Edgar Barrier), who are angry at civilisation for exploiting their resources and encroaching on their domain.
Meanwhile, Lea's younger brother Kimba (Tommy Cook), who is desperate to earn warrior status by presenting his tribe with a human heart, tricks his way into the Tarzan household and sets his murderous sights on Jane (Brenda Joyce)...
After a few not particularly impressive movies, its great to see the Weissmuller Tarzan series back on form at last with possibly the ape man's most satisfying adventure since Tarzan and His Mate: not only do we get an enjoyably silly premise, impossibly wicked villains, and an exciting finale, but we also see leopard men performing daft dance routines, Cheetah playing a flute and charming a rubber snake, Tarzan grappling with hairy wrestler Tongolo the Terrible (played by professional wrestler 'King Kong' Kashey), four pretty teachers almost eaten by crocodiles, and an exciting chase scene in which Tarzan prepares deadly booby traps for his pursuers.
A hugely entertaining slice of escapist jungle fun, I rate Tarzan and the Leopard Woman 7.5 out of 10, rounded up to 8 for IMDb.
