Product Description

TARZAN THE APE MAN (1932) The first teaming of Johnny Weissmuller as Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Jungle Lord and Maureen O’Sullivan as Jane sets a high adventure standard and includes an exciting sequence of elephants rescuing Tarzan and Jane from pygmy captors. TARZAN ESCAPES (1936) A vile bwana has Tarzan caged and ready to ship to England for display as a sideshow freak. Can steel bars hold the ape man? Catch fascinating glimpses of Tarzan and Jane’s jungle domesticity, including their dazzling treehouse. TARZAN AND HIS MATE (1934) This second Weissmuller/O’Sullivan film includes footage edited shortly after the movie’s original release, including a playful skinny-dip sequence. Tarzan also subdues a rhinoceros, wrestles a crocodile and rescues Jane as she’s besieged by lions and warriors near a sacred elephant burial ground. TARZAN FINDS A SON! (1939) There’s a new cry in the jungle – the cry of an infant. A baby that survived a plane crash is adopted by Tarzan and Jane. John Sheffield debuts as Boy and outside intruders trigger a family rift igniting a crisis of kidnap, rescue and reunion. DISC 1: TARZAN THE APE MAN and TARZAN ESCAPES DISC 2: TARZAN AND HIS MATE and TARZAN FINDS A SON! Languages: English & Français • Subtitles: English, Français & Español.

Many actors have slipped on a loincloth and swung from a jungle vine, but nobody reached the treetops of Tarzania quite like Johnny Weissmuller, the Olympic swimmer. And Tarzan's greatest Jane was Maureen O'Sullivan, who moved into T's treehouse for six films at MGM, all collected in this splendid boxed set. It is possible to find these films hokey... but only if you have absolutely no feeling for the magic of early-sound pictures, or no joy in the gee-whiz, Saturday-matinee wonder of Tarzan's prelapsarian lifestyle. To say nothing of the surprisingly overt running theme of (implied) hot jungle sex.

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

I watched these movies with my father and brothers on Sunday afternoons. We were farmers and Sunday afternoons were our only day of rest and these films and other "old" movies were an anticipated treat. These DVD's are clear, complete and have scenes I do not recall from my childhood! Watching these movies floods my mind with wonderful memories of a simpler, less complicated life.

These are great! Johnny Weismuller is not a good actor, but he really doesnt have to be in these. This collection are by far the best of the
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).

The TCM collection of the Johnny Weissmuller Tarzan movies gave me sharp, clear, excellent DVDs of some of my favorite childhood films. Even as an (alleged) adult I love watching them.

I grew up watching Tarzan movies every Sunday afternoon. Of course Johnny Weismuller is (in my opinion) the definitive Tarzan. I HIGHLY recommend this series to ANYONE, young or old. A fun ride for all.
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.

Great Tarzan Collection. I have always been a fan of the Weissmuller roll of Tarzan. And Maureen O'Sullivan as Jane, well there's no other like her. Worth having in any movie collection.

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.
