The movies in this second collection of Tarzan adventures pass the Samuel L. Jackson Snakes on a Plane title test. Either you want to own a film called Tarzan and the Leopard Woman or you don't. And if you're a fan of the original Tarzan movies, then no doubt you must. These are the last six Tarzan films to star Johnny Weissmuller in the iconic role that spawned a thousand hollers (so ingrained is Carol Burnett's imitation of his signature shout-out that Weissmuller's own performance seems lacking!). Produced for RKO, they are low-budget affairs, but really, who watches Tarzan movies for the production values? The more fake the backdrops and the more obvious the mismatched stock animal footage the better! Tarzan and the Amazons (1945) offers more traditional jungle villains and exploitative explorers, while exotic cults figure in Tarzan and the Leopard Woman (1946).

Maureen O'Sullivan has left the jungle, but Brenda Joyce makes for a very fetching Jane. Johnny Sheffield matures before our eyes as Boy. And Weissmuller still manages to avoid loincloth malfunctions as he swings through the trees and tangles with animal and human adversaries. He is both a role model ("Never kill for fun, only for food," he tells Boy at one point) and something of a jungle chauvinist ("Jungle much more peaceful before woman come," he jokes with Jane). But the breakout star of these films is Cheetah, who effortlessly steals every scene he's in, whether covering his eyes when Tarzan and Jane kiss or parachuting out of an airplane. Things were getting rote by the time of Tarzan's Secret Treasure, and the jungle is left behind entirely for Tarzan's New York Adventure, which has some fun stunts. It's a Hollywood cliché, but truly, they don't make 'em like this anymore! --Donald Liebenson and Robert Horton

Product Description

TARZAN’S SECRET TREASURE (1941) A gold discovery endangers the Jungle Lord’s family. Johnny Weissmuller, Maureen O’Sullivan and John Sheffield star. Reginald Owen, Barry Fitzgerald, Tom Conway and Philip Dorn play interlopers who stir up trouble. TARZAN’S NEW YORK ADVENTURE (1942) “Stone jungle,” Tarzan says when he sees New York City. But the Lord of the Apes can master any jungle – especially when determined to find son Boy, kidnapped by unscrupulous circus operators. TARZAN AND THE AMAZONS (1945) Tarzan welcomes home Jane (Brenda Joyce) from a family visit to England and then rushes to the aid a secluded female tribe put in jeopardy after Boy leads a party of archaeologists to their hidden valley. TARZAN AND THE LEOPARD WOMAN (1946) A murderous tribe that wears the disguise and claws of leopards attacks a visiting caravan and menaces Jane and Boy. Could the cult’s beautiful and calculating queen (Acquanetta) outmatch the strength and fury of Tarzan? DISC 1: TARZAN’S SECRET TREASURE and TARZAN’S NEW YORK ADVENTURE DISC 2: TARZAN AND THE AMAZONS and TARZAN AND THE LEOPARD WOMAN Subtitles: English, Français & Español.

4.0 out of 5 stars Johnny Weismuller Tarzan flicks rule! May 7, 2012
Verified Purchase
A recent discussion with an old friend had reminded me of how much fun those old Tarzan movies were, so I got this package because it contains the greatest Tarzan film ever made; bar none: " Tarzan's New York Adventure". The other three are also most excellent, but nothing tops Tarzan in NY. A sleazy circus owner kidnaps Boy and makes him a circus attraction in NY, so Tarzan, Jane and Cheetah must travel to NY to rescue him. During a child-custody hearing for Boy, a slimy lawyer conducts a brutal cross-examination of Jane, so a nattily-dressed Tarzan flings him across the courtroom. WOW! This must be seen to be believed. Trust me, it's the ultimate fantasy of everyone who's ever been in court or who has been forced to consort with lawyers. Anyway, if anybody wants to get in touch with their inner child for a couple hours, try this collection of flicks of Johnny Weismuller as Tarzan. Just relax and let them work their magic and you'll be transported away from your cares and worries and feel like a little kid again for a very pleasant mini-vacation. Ungawa!

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless Cool October 8, 2012
Verified Purchase
I have a six year old son who is super-hero crazy. Avengers, Batman, Superman, etc... Now I can add Tarzan (Johnny Weismuller) to the list. My son is just as enthralled by these films as he is by today's movies. And obviously, the 'special effects' aren't quite the same. It just shows that truly classic films can be just as entertaining as the super-hero movies of today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Weissmullers MGM were the best. August 16, 2011

To put it in simple terms: The Weissmuller-Tarzans by MGM were the best. Take it from me, I watched them for mor than fifty years.

5.0 out of 5 stars What can you say April 28, 2013
By ceecee

I LOVE these old films. There is only Johnny Weismuller and company when you think of Tarzan. He is the definitive screen jungle man. Okay so maybe it can be a bit corny at times, but it is great, and how about those Amazons, real girls with real womens' bodies, maybe a bit solid by today's standards but really sexeeee and really cuddly.

3.0 out of 5 stars Brenda Joyce is no Jane November 20, 2013
Verified Purchase
The Tarzan New York Adventure was a classic Tarzan flick, one of the best. But the others lacked the same entertainment value. Perhaps it is because Brenda Joyce just doesn't make nearly as good a Jane as Maureen O'Sullivan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tarzan: Johnny Weismuller October 4, 2012
Verified Purchase
Johnny Weismuller was the best Tarzan ever! I have been waiting for these movies to become available on DVD at a decent price. The product is well put together technically. I plan to get all of his Tarzan movies on DVD and add them to my collection. I will enjoy these movies for a long time.
