This was the fifth Tarzan film for Lex Barker, and features the fifth different actress to play Jane opposite him. When Gordon Scott took over the role of The Ape Man in the next film in this franchise (Tarzan's Hidden Jungle) the role of Jane was not even included. See more »

Great title! Terrible Tarzan picture, despite well cast villains, Burr & Conway
Director Kurt Neumann directed the horror classic "The Fly" but the dull Tarzan material here is nowhere as good as that classic. Despite a rather provocative title, this film doesn't have any She-Devils who look the Tura Satana or anything close. Instead, all you get is a lot fo stock footage of animals, jungles, and a boring story about ivory hunters needing to be stopped by Tarzan. One of the ivory hunters is played by George Sanders' sound-alike brother Tom Conway, so that's a bit fun. Its' also funny because Conway earlier played a great white hunter who tricks Tarzan into helping him find hidden gold. You'd think Tarzan would have learned his lesson the first time! Raymond Burr plays the main baddie, so that's a good thing, but there's not much besides Burr and Conway to recommend about this one. Probably a low point all the Tarzan pictures, which was also the last time Lex Barker played the role.
