Tarzan and the animals
4 December 2008 | by See all my reviews

The Tarzan saga continues.This time Tarzan is upset after a group of people want to take animals from the jungle and fill the shortage they have of zoo animals in America.Luckily Tarzan speaks the language of the animals so he can get help from the elephants if he needs.Kurt Neumann's Tarzan and the Huntress (1947) is a very good addition to the Tarzan franchise.Johnny Weissmuller, who to many is the one and only Tarzan really is one of the kind.Brenda Joyce, who is still living at the age of 96, makes her third of five performances as Jane.What a fine Jane she makes! Johnny Sheffield as the adopted son of Tarzan marks his eight and final appearance as Boy.Patricia Morison, now 93, is awfully lovely with her dark long hair.The great Barton MacLane plays Paul Weir.Also fine performances are given by John Warburton (Carl Marley), Charles Trowbridge (King Farrod) and Maurice Tauzin (Prince Suli).You can't count Cheeta the chimpanzee out.The final picture with Cheeta coming down an airplane with a parachute is unforgettable.This movie entertained me thoroughly.Tarzan and the Huntress gives you the right amount of action, adventure and some romance.
