Editorial Reviews

When authorities ask Tarzan what he'll need to pursue a crime kingpin and his commandos through the wilds of Mexico, the Ape-Man requests only a good knife, a sturdy rope and some soft leather to fashion into a loincloth. "Casual but practical," he explains to the astonished officials. It's a new day for fans and for the jungle lord when ex-NFL linebacker Mike Henry grabs the vine for the first of his three portrayals of a Tarzan who has one foot in the power-suited, briefcase-toting urban world and another in the untamed wilds. This new action hero will need all his skills - from relying on animal instincts to commandeering a tank - in this adventure that ends with an explosive showdown in an uncharted city filled with gold.

Format: DVD
1966's "Tarzan and the Valley of Gold", part of producer Sy Weintraub's continuing effort to both 'update' Tarzan and achieve some fidelity with Edgar Rice Burrough's original vision, was a film three years in the making. His previous Tarzan, Jock Mahoney, was too old to build a franchise around (at 44), and had nearly died from illnesses contracted during the making of "Tarzan's Three Challenges", in Thailand, in 1963. Actor and producer had mutually agreed to end their working arrangement (not surprisingly!), and Weintraub now searched for a tall, dark, charismatic athlete-type in his thirties, who could convincingly perform stunts, look good in a loincloth, and would be willing to commit to both movie and television 'Tarzan' projects.

Enter football star Mike Henry...the 6'3" Los Angeles Rams linebacker, a six-year NFL vet, was doing bit parts at Warner Brothers during the off-seasons, and announced he wished to retire from the game and act full-time. At nearly 30, with a ripped, Adonis-like physique, and swarthy good looks, Henry had already caught the attention of producer Bill Dozier, who was courting him for his upcoming 'Batman' project (long before it turned 'camp', with Adam West), and Weintraub had to act quickly and decisively to commit him to Tarzan (his unwillingness to move quickly a few years earlier had cost him the services of Sean Connery as Tarzan, when Cubby Broccoli tapped him for the role of James Bond). Offering a package of films and television, and a lucrative salary that would increase as the boxoffice of the new series poured in, Henry was dazzled by the offer, and signed. Weintraub arranged to produce three films, nearly simultaneously, in Mexico and Brazil (to save production costs), while beginning production on a full-color television series, in Mexico.

Format: DVD
This is the first of three times that Mike Henry plays Tarzan, who is now no longer what his creator thought of him, but an international super hero, a strong man called upon by people of different nations to come and help them. In the last episode, Tarzan, played by another man, parachuted into Thailand. In this 1966 episode, he flies into Mexico dressed in a business suit and is attacked by a gunman who tries to kill him. He responds like a James Bond secret agent and kills his attacker. In fact, the first quarter of this entertaining film is much like James Bond, except for the music. There is even a gadget, as in the Bond series; however, it is used by the criminal, perfectly played by David Apatoshu.

Tarzan's mission is to find, protect, and deliver home an Aztec boy who has been kidnapped. The kidnappers want the boy to reveal to them where his hidden home filled with gold is located. Tarzan drops his suit, and scantily dressed in the well-known Tarzan outfit of a skimpy bathing suit type pants runs off with the help of a monkey, a leopard, and a lion. He does take along a knife and rope to fight a well equipped army with a tank and submachine guns, but what else will Tarzan need? This is a fine film, and viewers will enjoy it.

Tarzan meets Goldfinger!!! What the h---? Zubin Mehta may not be my absolute favorite conductor-but he has a gorgeous wife, Nancy Kovack-and she never looked better than in this movie. Unfortunately, every time I watch this, and see Mike Henry's abs, I feel I should run to the gym and do 500 crunches (could I do them over a month maybe?) This had to be influenced by the Bond films, since Tarzan looks like Sean Connery in the opening sequence (or at least Matt Helm). The nice thing is I don't have to listen to the inane dialogue-in fact I'm playing the Vladar/Wadsworth recording of the Beethoven 4 and 5 concerti in the background, because there is no plot! Gotta love the fact that Henry's and Kovack's hair never moves. I didn't know they had so many beauty parlors around the Mayan ruins, did you? Plus, the Mayan Chief looks like a refugee from the Central European casting lot!

Too often, this film is referred to as a "James Bond Tarzan". But when I saw Mike Henry get off the plane in a suit, I was pleased to see Edgar Rice Burroughs (not Ian Fleming) had finally made it to the screen. This is Burrough's Tarzan as any literate Lord of the Jungle fan knows. And Mr. Henry looks awesome in that suit. If you told someone to pick up Tarzan at the airport, you would have little trouble finding this guy! My God, that physique-it's a million dollars of special effects right there. Many fans of the series agree, nobody nailed the image of Tarzan better than Mike Henry. It's a terrible shame the producers almost literally worked him to death by his third and final appearance in Tarzan and the Jungle Boy. Mike's three films were shot back to back mostly under miserable conditions in Brazil. A little less greed and more foresight would have led to his keeping the role for the TV series.
But back to Valley of Gold. Production was excellent for it's budget and I love him using modern weapons Tarzan style, especially the bolo-grenades. This was almost entering Philipe Jose Farmer territory, a storyline I wish had happened rather than trying to appeal to a younger audience. A more adult oriented Tarzan wouldn't appear until that Greystoke abomination in the Eighties. So we are left with a bridge to a more sophisticated Tarzan that is so tantilizing close to what Burroughs wrote of.
