Little does Eleanor Reed realize that her African safari will be a one-way trip. Accompanying her father Roger Reed, her mother Penny Reed and fiancé Nevin deep into the African jungle to collect wild animals, Eleanor wins the adulation of Ben Alleu Bey, a local chief whose chief occupation seems to be adding new women to his harem. Spurned by Eleanor, Bey plans to kidnap her and almost succeeds when Tarzan, whom Eleanor has befriended, swings into action in this old classic feature film!.
Running Time: 70 Minutes
MPAA Ratings: G
"Hollywood’s fondness for casting Olympic champions in the role of Tarzan is evident once again in this 1938 version of the jungle king’s adventures. Tall and lithe Glen Morris suits the role of Tarzan perfectly, and his athletic prowess is well utilized by director D. Ross Lederman. Petite Eleanor Holm also fits the bill admirably. The locales, deep in the heart of Africa, provide a perfect backdrop for the plot, which though a little predictable, is absorbing nonetheless because of the amazing wares on display. Scenes of wild animals from leopards to hungry crocodiles and prowling lions are engrossing, as is the portrayal of a pleasure-loving sultan. A sprinkling of humor provided by a chattering chimp and sneezing Penny Reed binds the narrative well and the fast-paced plot ensures that there isn’t a single dull moment. Although you do not see much of Tarzan in the first few minutes, Eleanor’s charm and magnetism more than make up for wait. Any film featuring Tarzan is expected to provide the audience with an hour of thrills and seat-gripping suspense and this classic movie - captured to full effect on DVD by A2ZCDS - lives up fully to that expectation. Join Tarzan as he swings from tree to tree - straight into the heart of pretty Eleanor Reed!"
"Actually, I’m a diehard Johnny Weissmueller fan myself, but Glenn Morris is outstanding as Tarzan in ‘Tarzan’s Revenge’. He does for the Jungle Lord what Roger Moore did for James Bond – he outdoes his predecessor. Two thumbs up to A2ZCDS for a riotous jungle adventure with all the mandatory predatory trimmings."
Vernon Casey (Oakland, CALIFORNIA)
"I loved ‘Tarzan’s Revenge’. Glenn Morris carries it off with confidence and panache. This perfect gem of old cinema is perfectly timed and does Burroughs total justice. Moreover, it dares to detract from the safe formula and takes the inimitable character of Tarzan to a new and interesting level. Fully worth the watching." Steve W. Carlsworth (Baton Rouge, LOUISIANA)
