Movie Info

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

The first Weismuller Tarzan and still one of the best.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

'Tarzan the Ape Man is one helluva action film ... contrasting civilization with the wild and criticizing human greed without being overly preachy'

July 21, 2002 Full Review Source: Old School Reviews

Tarzan the Ape Man (1932) is the first feature-length talking (sound) version of the Tarzan series [Tarzan films stretch into the silent film era back to 1918].
