Gordon Scott..... the best Tarzan ever!!!
23 August 2018 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

The last couple of movie such as "Tarzan's Greatest Adventure" and "Tarzan the magnificent" were the best Tarzan's pictures of all time,Gordon Scott surpassed all previous Tarzan and after to coming,he has a smart talking,more strong and has suitable skills from previous ones here including Weissmuller who had a dumb conversation,the great Sy Weintraub wisely put together a perfect ape man,and delivery all this on a clever screenplay through the jungle,swamps,quicksands with a diversfied kind of persons,to deliver a cold killer with father's gang at his neck,finest casting as Jock Mahoney Betta St John and John Carradine,fantastic adventure which l'd watched in the theatre with nine years old,unforgetable!!

Resume:

First watch: 1973 / How many ; 6 / Source: Theatre-TV-DVD / Rating: 9
