The original and definitive Tarzan sound movie -- following several silent films on the same subject -- stuck fairly closely to the novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Olympic swimming champion Johnny Weissmuller was cast by MGM as the European boy who was raised by gorillas in the jungle after he and his parents were shipwrecked and his parents died. Three ivory hunters lead an expedition into the jungle hoping to find the Elephant's Graveyard. They are James Parker (C. Aubrey Smith), his daughter

Very vine, er...fine Weismuller, his first, with sexy O'Sullivan Jane.
First and rawest of the Weismuller Tarzans
The first feature-length talking version of the Tarzan series, and the best in the series.
The first Weismuller Tarzan and still one of the best.
'Tarzan the Ape Man is one helluva action film ... contrasting civilization with the wild and criticizing human greed without being overly preachy'
