4.0 out of 5 stars Sol Lesser double feature.... March 24, 2005
Verified Purchase
It makes sense to put out these two Tarzan films together: made a few years apart both by producer Sol Lesser in an effort to capture some of the spotlight of MGM's Johnny Weissmuller Tarzan epics. Both star former Olympic champions--Buster Crabbe and Glen Morris, respectively (Revenge... actually stars two chanpions; co-star Eleanor Holm was a swimming champion; she was so famous that no attempt was made to call her "Jane"--she was referred to by her name, Eleanor). Both films even use the same stock library music. Both are modestly budgeted, which shows in comparison to the Weissmuller Tarzan films. But both are quite enjoyable. Tarzan the Fearless is a feature version of what was originally a movie serial that seems to be lost. Having seen poor to mediocre quality videos and dvd's in the past of both of these films, this is the best, clearest, quality I've seen yet--very acceptable. And the viewer even gets a bonus: chapter 1 of Radar Men From the Moon, also put out by the Roan Group. I've been waiting to pick these films up on dvd and finally settled on this inexpensive double-feature version--and I'm glad I did.

4.0 out of 5 stars DOUBLE JUNGLE BUNGLE August 16, 2013
By Casey62
I gotta admit, I'm a sucker for jungle B-movies, and if they're Tarzan adventures, all the better. Two of them make up a double-feature DVD put out by the Roan Group, TARZAN THE FEARLESS (1933), and TARZAN'S REVENGE (1938). Produced by B-journeyman Sol Lesser, both films are good, old-fashioned jungle romps with one viewer requirement, and that's to sit back and enjoy.

TARZAN THE FEARLESS is the better of the two, with a fairly interesting plot. Originally a 12 part serial, all that exists is a feature version that's been floating around in public domain VHS and DVD transfers for years. Based on an original story by Edgar Rice Burroughs and directed by Robert F. Hill, TARZAN THE FEARLESS stars Olympic swimming champion turned actor Buster Crabbe as the famed ape-man. Crabbe, who went on to immortalize Flash Gordon in three serials for Universal, dons a leopard-skin loincloth and makes a pretty good Tarzan too, albeit an inarticulate one. But hey, that's part of the fun of the character. The important thing is he handles himself well in the action scenes. The story concerns a fortune hunter (Philo McCollough) out to kill Tarzan so he could claim a large reward. He and his accomplice (Matthew Betz) accompany a professor (E. Alyn Warren), his daughter (Jacqueline Wells) and her boyfriend (Edward Woods) on a safari to search for a treasure in emeralds that's guarded by the ancient tribe of Zar.

Since this was edited down from a serial, the continuity is understandably a little choppy in spots. The acting is appropriately melodramatic, with occasional unintentional humor such as when the villain is dying and he moans, "I was wrong Mary, trying to win you... by being a rotter!" Also, Matthew Betz's idea of acting tough consists of constantly hitching up his pants and spitting.

3.0 out of 5 stars Tarzan the Fearless/Tarzan's Revenge September 29, 2013
Verified Purchase
Not bad DVD containing two 1930s B quality Tarzan movies. TARZAN THE FEARLESS was originally a serial that was eventually edited and stitched together to make a feature-length film. OK. Tarzan is played by Buster Crabbe, a not bad looking athlete that plays Tarzan in his interaction with the love interest like he is mentally impaired. Tarzan and Mary, (not Jane), act like two grammar school kids with each other. No romantic chemistry at all, even for an early 1930s film. Somewhat dullsville. TARZAN'S REVENGE stars two professional athletes as Tarzan and Eleanor, (again not Jane). Hedda Hopper, in one of her few movie roles, plays Eleanor's mother. A pair of unknowns, (at least by me), play Eleanor's doofball dad and animal-murdering, country-clubbing fiancé. This cracked family unit goes to Africa to bring back a zoo-full of captured animals. They run afoul of a lustful Arab potentate with a stronghold in the jungle. Sort of south of his expected regions. The non-actors playing Tarzan and Eleanor are just that. Again, no romantic chemistry. Other than that both of these films are OK time wasters. for Tarzan completists. The Roan DVD is not as high quality as I was hoping. Even though both transfers are OK quality, they are not re-mastered. Hopefully someday both films will be released upgraded and high quality.
