The movie was filmed during the Fall of 1965 with Mike Henry experiencing so many traumas (Chimp bite, infections, etc) that by January 1966 he quit the Tarzan movie series. The movie was shoved to the side for two years to work on the 1966 TV series as well as the release of "Tarzan & The Great River" (1967) that young actor Steve Bond (The Jungle Boy) had aged from 12 to 15 by the time the movie was filmed and released for the big screen.

In his third and final outing as the jungle hero, muscular Mike Henry (as Tarzan) sheds the trendy "James Bond" pseudo-spy opening for his regular game. After this film, interest was mainly on TV's "Tarzan" (Ron Ely). Clinging to more traditional vines, Mr. Henry finds the boy who went missing after the mishap in the opening sequence. He is little brown-haired Steve Bond (as Erik) - not the blond-haired boy lost, but you get the idea. Young "Jungle Boy" Bond grew up to become a muscular "General Hospital" TV soap opera hunk. Bond gets the job done, in his first feature appearance. Rafer Johnson does well, too. Beautifully proportioned Aliza Gur (as Myrna) is the feminine presence - watch for her Bond-age scene.
**** Tarzan and the Jungle Boy (5/68) Robert Gordon ~ Mike Henry, Steve Bond, Rafer Johnson, Aliza Gur
