Editorial Reviews

An ancient killer cult lives...and many people die! Under the leadership of charismatic Bacuna (Rafer Johnson), the murderous tribe has resurfaced, pillaging Amazon River villages, kidnapping inhabitants and enslaving them at Bacuna's secret enclave. Can Tarzan stop this relentless reign of terror?

As in his previous Tarzan and the Valley of Gold, Mike Henry plays the role of a reimagined Tarzan who is similar to a globe-trotting superspy and equally at ease in a suit or loincloth. Sidekick chimp Cheetah joins the adventure (filmed in scenic Brazil), as does a companion lion named Baron. Not to missed is the mano-a-mano finale between ex-NFL linebacker Henry and Olympic decathlon champ Johnson. Savor this clash of titans!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Bit 'Padded', but Mike Henry IS Tarzan! May 13, 2010
1967's "Tarzan and the Great River", the second of three Mike Henry 'Tarzan' films produced simultaneously in 1966, is probably best known, today, as the film where Dinky, the large chimp who played Cheeta, attacked Mike Henry, biting him severely on the jaw. The handlers were forced to put the animal down (previously filmed footage and other chimps would be used for the remainder of the films), Henry required 20 stitches, then infection set in and he developed a high fever and monkey fever delirium for several days, with filming halted for three weeks, while he recuperated. As he recovered, he announced he was finished playing 'Tarzan', after he fulfilled the three-film commitment (producer Sy Weintraub had planned to introduce a 'Tarzan' TV series, starring Henry, while the features were still in theatres; Ron Ely would be brought in, to play Tarzan in the television series...). Henry then sued Weintraub's production company for negligence, winning the case and an unpublished cash settlement.

Needless to say, it wasn't the happiest of times on the Tarzan set!

Despite all the drama, "Great River" isn't a bad film, if not in the league of the earlier Weintraub Tarzan entries. The story is set along the Amazon, and was filmed in Brazil (although stock footage of African lions and hippos would be added, as rather incongruous 'padding'). A leopard 'cult' headed by Olympian Rafer Johnson (as a voodoo-like leader), is attacking villages and using the populations as slave labor to extract diamonds from the hills, and Tarzan is called in to bring the cult down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mike Henry is the only true Tarzan of my generation! January 8, 2011
By Pétur
Format:DVD-R|Verified Purchase
A fantastic film and when I was a kid they used to show it all the time (alongside with Tarzan and the Lost Boy) for kids at the cinema in my home city, Reykjavik Iceland. Mike Henry is the only true Tarzan of my generation (I am born in 1968) and I doubt there shall ever be an actor as perfect for the role (I never saw Johny Weissmuller while Christopher Lambert was just ok. in the film). I had been searching for this film (and Tarzan and the Lost Boy) on DVD and it is so great to finally see it again with ones kids as it has been 35 years since last time!

4.0 out of 5 stars Tarzan vs. a man of magic November 7, 2011
This 1967 Tarzan 88 minute film stars Mike Henry as Tarzan for the second of three times that he will have the role. A vicious tribal leader called Baracuna frightens people who are convinced that he can make them sick and kill them with magic. His people attack peaceful native villages, in modern day South America, along the Amazon River, kill some inhabitants and take others as slaves to work Baracuna's diamond mine. A friend of Tarzan calls on him to help since the government is unable to find Baracuna and his tribesmen. Tarzan flies in from Africa on Pan Am in a conventional suit of clothes. The friend is killed by Baracuna's men. Tarzan takes off his clothes, and runs off to the jungle to revenge his friend. He takes along Cheetah the ape and a lion.

The comedian Jan Murray has the second lead in the film and adds lots of humor. He has adopted an Indian boy who is very cute. Cheetah finds an ape friend and there is plenty of hugging. A white female doctor escapes one of Baracuna's raids and Tarzan and Murray help her travel to a native village to vaccinate the tribe against a plague that they thought was Baracuna's magic. The film is fun to watch, but like most Tarzan films, many minutes are taken up showing us birds flying, animals fighting, and alligators swimming.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST TARZAN EVER April 5, 2013
Format:DVD-R|Verified Purchase
Mike Henry was the Tarzan from the books. He was educated, traveled the world and took care of the situations he was involved with. A top notch film. I received this movie in the promised time and in excellent condition. My thanks to the seller.
