Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Tarzan, the Ape Man (1932), made with the blessings of Tarzan creator Edgar Rice Burroughs, establishes the basics of the series (and uses extra Africa footage MGM had compiled for Trader Horn). There'd been many Tarzans before, but Weissmuller's buff bod and innocent charm won over audiences. Tarzan and His Mate is generally considered the best of the lot; it is also the sexiest, especially after the restoration of a hotsy-totsy nude swimming scene. The formula still works in Tarzan Escapes, which brings Jane's cousins out for a visit to the Mutia Escarpment, with its elephant-powered elevator for Tarzan's pad. (Always keep in mind that this is Africa of kiddie imagination, not the real deal.) Tarzan Finds a Son! introduces Johnny Sheffield as Boy, and stirs up the nest. --Robert Horton

Tarzan films. Maureen O'sullivan is the best Jane. There are two more Weismuller/O'sullivan films that are not on here, and are also good. My wife doesnt like them, but I love them. They are well done, and fun to watch. I've seen each of them several times and never get tired of them. Ok, so he swings on vines that if you look closely, are like the ones trapeze artists use, and he swings freely without hitting anything, kills lions and hippos with his knife....but hey, he's Tarzan after all! They are fun and pretty well done actually. (and you've gotta love Maureen O'sullivan).
This is a must have!!!! A great addition to any ones classic movies collection...
Highly recommend it !
Now, about Amazon. Excellent service. I have never (yet) had any complaints about either Amazon or any of the companies that I have purchased movies or music from. The speed with which they ship is "fantastically fast". I'm so glad that I found Amazon. Whenever I order something from them, I am almost 'giddy' with anticipation. The ONE time I had to return something (not the fault of either Amazon or the reseller) I received excellent service. Again, highest ratings to everyone. Thank you.
