All three of this film's principal actors (Gordon Scott as Tarzan, Eve Brent as Jane and Rickie Sorensen as Boy) would later reprise their roles in a failed 1960 attempt to feature Edgar Rice Burroughs' character in a television series. Three episodes were filmed, but when none of the TV networks at the time picked up the project, M-G-M spliced all three episodes together and they eventually aired as the TV movie Tarzan and the Trappers.

If you grew up watching Johnny Weismuller in those action packed programmers, this is just painful to watch. There are a few scenes of waterfalls, etc. that are nice but in the older films they used stock footage of wilderness along with wild African animals stampeding and attacking which in itself evoked a sense of danger utterly missing here. The pacing in the earlier films was quick and exciting while here, everyone sleepwalks through the entire movie with wooden acting by all involved. Action scenes are bland and suspense is nil. Gordon Scott is great eye candy but stinks up every scene he is in. Granted, it is not as noticeable as it could have been since all the other actors are doing the same thing. I hated seeing a dynamic character actor like Woody Strode stuck in this awful flick. He looked like he hated it too. I guess we all have to make a living.
