Product Description

TARZAN’S SECRET TREASURE (1941) A gold discovery endangers the Jungle Lord’s family. Johnny Weissmuller, Maureen O’Sullivan and John Sheffield star. Reginald Owen, Barry Fitzgerald, Tom Conway and Philip Dorn play interlopers who stir up trouble. TARZAN’S NEW YORK ADVENTURE (1942) “Stone jungle,” Tarzan says when he sees New York City. But the Lord of the Apes can master any jungle – especially when determined to find son Boy, kidnapped by unscrupulous circus operators. TARZAN AND THE AMAZONS (1945) Tarzan welcomes home Jane (Brenda Joyce) from a family visit to England and then rushes to the aid a secluded female tribe put in jeopardy after Boy leads a party of archaeologists to their hidden valley. TARZAN AND THE LEOPARD WOMAN (1946) A murderous tribe that wears the disguise and claws of leopards attacks a visiting caravan and menaces Jane and Boy. Could the cult’s beautiful and calculating queen (Acquanetta) outmatch the strength and fury of Tarzan? DISC 1: TARZAN’S SECRET TREASURE and TARZAN’S NEW YORK ADVENTURE DISC 2: TARZAN AND THE AMAZONS and TARZAN AND THE LEOPARD WOMAN Subtitles: English, Français & Español.

The movies in this second collection of Tarzan adventures pass the Samuel L. Jackson Snakes on a Plane title test. Either you want to own a film called Tarzan and the Leopard Woman or you don't. And if you're a fan of the original Tarzan movies, then no doubt you must. These are the last six Tarzan films to star Johnny Weissmuller in the iconic role that spawned a thousand hollers (so ingrained is Carol Burnett's imitation of his signature shout-out that Weissmuller's own performance seems lacking!). Produced for RKO, they are low-budget affairs, but really, who watches Tarzan movies for the production values? The more fake the backdrops and the more obvious the mismatched stock animal footage the better! Tarzan and the Amazons (1945) offers more traditional jungle villains and exploitative explorers, while exotic cults figure in Tarzan and the Leopard Woman (1946).

Maureen O'Sullivan has left the jungle, but Brenda Joyce makes for a very fetching Jane. Johnny Sheffield matures before our eyes as Boy. And Weissmuller still manages to avoid loincloth malfunctions as he swings through the trees and tangles with animal and human adversaries. He is both a role model ("Never kill for fun, only for food," he tells Boy at one point) and something of a jungle chauvinist ("Jungle much more peaceful before woman come," he jokes with Jane). But the breakout star of these films is Cheetah, who effortlessly steals every scene he's in, whether covering his eyes when Tarzan and Jane kiss or parachuting out of an airplane. Things were getting rote by the time of Tarzan's Secret Treasure, and the jungle is left behind entirely for Tarzan's New York Adventure, which has some fun stunts. It's a Hollywood cliché, but truly, they don't make 'em like this anymore! --Donald Liebenson and Robert Horton

A recent discussion with an old friend had reminded me of how much fun those old Tarzan movies were, so I got this package because it contains the greatest Tarzan film ever made; bar none: " Tarzan's New York Adventure". The other three are also most excellent, but nothing tops Tarzan in NY. A sleazy circus owner kidnaps Boy and makes him a circus attraction in NY, so Tarzan, Jane and Cheetah must travel to NY to rescue him. During a child-custody hearing for Boy, a slimy lawyer conducts a brutal cross-examination of Jane, so a nattily-dressed Tarzan flings him across the courtroom. WOW! This must be seen to be believed. Trust me, it's the ultimate fantasy of everyone who's ever been in court or who has been forced to consort with lawyers. Anyway, if anybody wants to get in touch with their inner child for a couple hours, try this collection of flicks of Johnny Weismuller as Tarzan. Just relax and let them work their magic and you'll be transported away from your cares and worries and feel like a little kid again for a very pleasant mini-vacation. Ungawa!

I LOVE these old films. There is only Johnny Weismuller and company when you think of Tarzan. He is the definitive screen jungle man. Okay so maybe it can be a bit corny at times, but it is great, and how about those Amazons, real girls with real womens' bodies, maybe a bit solid by today's standards but really sexeeee and really cuddly.

This second volume of Johnny Weissmuller's "Tarzan" is almost as much fun as the first collection offered by Turner Classic Movies. With this collection you get:

Tarzan's Secret Treasure (1941) - In this entry, Boy discovers a bunch of gold sitting at the bottom of the jungle family's swimming hole, and uses the odd rocks for his slingshot. Not long after, a safari stumbles it's way onto Tarzan's escarpment looking to capture some exotic animals, but learns of the gold. Hoping to find the source of the gold, the men will stop at nothing to discover the hidden treasure.

Tarzan's New York Adventure (1942) - This one is a lot of fun, and probably the highlight of this collection. While trying to capture wild animals for his circus, a ruthless animal trainer discovers Boy's talent with animals. Thinking that Tarzan and Jane have been killed by a native tribe, they take Boy back to New York to put him on display. Jane and Tarzan follow the trail of the circus owner all the way back to New York City where Tarzan must learn to deal with civilization. Cheeta is riot in this one,

Tarzan and the Amazons (1945) - Tarzan rescues a beautiful young woman from being attacked by a Panther. Tarzan sees by her jewelry that she belongs to a hidden tribe of Amazon women, Taking the wounded girl home, Boy follows Tarzan and learns the location of the lost tribe. Some treasure hungry men learn that Boy knows where the Amazon women are located and convince him to lead them to where no man (except Tarzan) has gone before.

Tarzan and the Leopard Woman (1946) - Education is coming to Africa, but one tribe does not want outsiders to civilize their region.

I have a six year old son who is super-hero crazy. Avengers, Batman, Superman, etc... Now I can add Tarzan (Johnny Weismuller) to the list. My son is just as enthralled by these films as he is by today's movies. And obviously, the 'special effects' aren't quite the same. It just shows that truly classic films can be just as entertaining as the super-hero movies of today.

Okay, I grew up on this movie. I absolutely adore Johnny Wissenmueller in this movie, I think he played it perfectly. My dad actually has all the old episodes on vhs from tcm when they had a marathon of it a decade or so ago. Unfortunately there has been alot ofoves and noone knows where those tapes are. So my Christmas gift to him was two of the DVDs that had multiple episodes on it
No doubt I will be swiping this for my own enjoyment many a nights but I can forsee a frequent use of these rapes!!!

Johnny Weissmuller is still the 'classic' Tarzan. They've tried many times to revive the franchise, but none have stood the test of time like Weissmuller's 'TARZAN'. 4 great movies to sit down and watch and share with those who may have never seen these classics. They've been able to 're-invent' Batman, Spiderman and Superman, but these are still the best Tarzan collection.

My boyfriend loves these all Tarzan movies and I have to admit, I get a kick out of watching them with him. It's like he says, "Tarzan is a man of few words", but what he says speaks volumes. He's a cool cat. I never tire of the swimming scenes. Also, who wouldn't want to live in that great tree house!
