5.0 out of 5 stars An Indispensable source for the Tarzan movies September 22, 2005
David Fury's KINGS OF THE JUNGLE is an indispensable sourcebook of information on the Tarzan movies. It is well-researched and includes detailed information on dates, production, and actors. A long story synopsis is provided with critical reviews for every Tarzan movie and television series up to 1994. Rather than skipping this one for the Gabe Essoe book, which IS loaded with photographs, it would be well to buy both! It is a book that can be read with pleasure as well as being a splendid ready reference.

3.0 out of 5 stars Information-good, book quality-poor. September 13, 2005
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a book that will appeal to any Tarzan fan, loads of information and rare details. The author is very pro Johnny Weismuller, which is fair enough as Weismuller played Tarzan more times than anyone else. He states that 'Tarzan and his Mate' is the best Tarzan movie of all time, not a point of view that I share but the author's comments and reasons are well put together. The major fault of this book is the poor quality of the materials - paper quality is poor, black and white photos on newsprint, no glossies or colour shots and as a result the book is grossly over priced. Avid fans will enjoy it but Gabe Essoe's 'Tarzan of the Movies' is a better buy.

3.0 out of 5 stars More fact checking needed February 23, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
While the book is fun and readable, the author repeats various stories which have been proven false or misleading by other sources. For greater detail and more accurate information, turn to books published by the ERBville Press (with whom this reviewer is NOT affiliated).

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a good buy. April 19, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It lacked a lot of details and it relied on the same old tired synopses that I've read before in many places. It was not up to my expectations.... I should have passed on it.
