This was the first of six times Gordon Scott would play Tarzan. In the 1960s, he migrated to Europe and appeared in several Italian "swords and sandals" movies. See more »

Gordon Scott's Debut RKO's Demise Better Things to Come
Known Most Notably as the Debut Film for Gordon Scott's Stint as Tarzan, but Also for RKO on the Way Out of the Business and Refusing Any Budget for the Thing, and Scott Meeting and Marrying Vera Miles on the Set.
The Movie has No Jane, No Boy, and Only Cheta Returns to Pal Along with Tarzan as He Once Again Goes Up Against White Hunters Who are on a Safari of Death for Profit. The Hidden Jungle of the Title Refers to an Across the River Sanctuary for the Critters Helped by a Friendly Native Tribe that Exchanges Remedies with a United Nations Doctor.
Jack Elam and His Bad Guys Run Up Against the Natives and Tarzan and the Result is Predictable but Fun. The Series Would Get Better with Gordon Scott Becoming More Articulate and the Stories More Diversified. Glorious Color Became a Tarzan Standard and the Franchise, Once Again, Had Some Critical and Fan Success Following This One.
