Tarzan the Ape Man Reviews
*Esta pagina esta mala, el aņo, la descripcion y los actores son de la version del 81, pero el poster, el trailer y el director son de la original.
Maureen O'Sullivan is great as Jane and the story is mostly told through her persepctive. It's a treat to see Neil Hamilton (Commissioner Gordon from the "Batman" TV series) as her young love interest, and I like the way they developed the love triangle. Best of all Cheetah is just a monkey here and not yet a slapstick comic.
Overall, the film was somewhat amusing, though a bit slow in parts. It only bore a passing similarity to the book, which is really too bad because the book actually has a lot more depth (quite action-packed, yes, but it's also a classic coming-of-age story).
Fantastic movie, with Jane screaming about every 20 seconds. I've been waiting to see this again since I was about 12 years old. Thank you Turner Classics.
