Shipwrecked on the coast of Africa, Lord Jack Clayton (Paul Geoffrey) and his pregnant wife Lady Alice (Cheryl Campbell) attempt to survive in the hostile environment, but both die shortly after the birth of their son John.

As long as they stay in the jungle, this Tarzan may be one of the very best versions of the character you're likely to see.

Beautiful. A real view of an ape man clashing with the civilization.

Hugh Hudson has fashioned a visually resplendent film that, while perhaps a bit too rigid to offer the proper degree of high adventure synonymous with the Tarzan trademark, contains no small measure of compelling sequences and strong performances.

Audience Reviews for Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes

Quite an entertaining live action Tarzan film. One more for the kids though.
