Trivia

Sharon Tate was the original casting pick for the female lead. There are photographs in existence from 1965 of her with Mike Henry along with a lion at a press conference that was held to promote the two newcomers. Martin Ransohoff who had the starlet under exclusive contract changed his mind about having this being her first film and the role was recast with Nancy Kovack. See more »

Enjoyable Tarzan movie , plenty of action , adventures and quite entertaining
8 May 2007 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

The picture concerns a tidy Tarzan (a bouncing Mike Henry) well suited with necktie and elegant and carrying a briefcase . But a nasty assassin named Vinaro (the distinguished secondary David Opatoshu) schemes heinous plans . He abducts a little boy (Manuel Padilla) . Thus Tarzan , now in his loincloth , heads to jungle in order to save the spunky ten-years-old-boy and gets into trouble with bad guy , an evil with six feet high named Mr Train (the habitual villain Don Megowan) . Meanwhile , avaricious mercenaries with tanks , a little army and helicopters are going to the lost city of gold . The criminal Vinaro is accompanied by a beautiful girl named Sophia (attractive Nancy Kovack , nowadays married to Zubin Metha) who is leaved with an explosive necklace . The treasure seekers wish they hadn't messed with the ape-man .

The movie is dubiously faithful to Edgar Rice Borroughs story . However , it contains noisy action , sensational adventures , wonderful outdoors and with some elements from James Bond films . The sets and production design are visually appealing . Film was shot in city of Mexico with background of the famous Aztecas pyramids and temples . As usual , there are the obvious uses of stock footage in many of the wild animal sequences though with the intervention of a well trained lion and a chimpanzee ex-professed for the film . The film was produced by Sy Weintraub (substituting former producer Sol Lesser) , he produced three for Mike Henry directed by Robert Day : ¨Tarzan and the jungle boy ¨ and ¨The great river¨ and this one. Besides , he produced two for Jock Mahoney : ¨Three challenges¨ and ¨Tarzan goes to India (directed by John Guillermin)¨ and two for Gordon Scott (recently deceased) :¨Tarzan the Magnificent¨ and ¨The greatest adventure (by John Guillermin)¨. Also he produced the classic TV series with Ron Ely and the little boy , Manuel Padilla Jr ,in this one as co-starring.
