According to the article "Author's family sues makers of steamy Tarzan film" in The Independent (London), Aug 9, 1996 by Louise Jury, the estate of Edgar Rice Burroughs understandably objected to this film. See more »

TARZAN-X: SHAME OF JANE is one of the many porno movies churned out by Italian exploitation king director Joe D'Amato during the 1990s. I guess mainstream cinema had run dry for the director by that stage (with a few exceptions such as FRANKENSTEIN 2000) and he instead found profit in grot.
In any case, this is your usual cheap porn movie, a retelling of the classic Tarzan with added sex. And sex is the only thing it has going for it really. Jane is on an expedition in Africa when she meets up with Tarzan and falls in love with him; she brings him back to Britain, where culture shock sets in.
The film stars the hard-working Rocco Siffredi as the Ape Man, and although he doesn't have much charisma he looks the part. The woman are all of the strikingly beautiful variety, and there's certainly plenty of sex here, although the story is very light and silly. TARZAN-X deserves mention for being entirely shot in Kenya as well as achieving some notoriety when the estate of Edgar Rice Burroughs unsurprisingly attempted to bring a lawsuit against it; they failed.
