In this exciting jungle adventure composed of two episodes from Tarzan (1966) spliced up together as a feature film, the esteemed archaeologist, Dr Singleton, and his daughter, Mary, travel to mystical Africa in search of an ancient artefact: the fabled Blue Stone of Heaven. Imbued with the unfathomable power to bestow its holder with immense strength, the statuette attracts corrupt Colonel Tatakombi, who, blind with greed, intends to spark an uprising, and turn the natives against Tarzan. Can mighty Tarzan avert the jungle rebellion? —Nick Riganas
Originally the pilot for the series
This "Tarzan" episode was originally released theatrically in 1965,but it was in fact the pilot episode for the series which stars Ron Ely as the ape man. Not a bad premise,but its a good start for what it would become later on as a two part episode that was shown on the Tarzan series which ran on NBC(from 1966-1968). If you check out the theatrical version,you can catch a youthful Nichelle Nichols(during her pre Star Trek days,but basically a year before Star Trek went on the air)as queen of a warrior tribe.
