Audience Reviews for Tarzan Escapes

  • Jul 29, 2018
    If it's not broke, then don't fix it, so the saying goes, and MGM knew where their golden egg was. And so this, the 3rd in the series features all of the elements the public loved in the continuing ERB story a boy raised by apes who becomes king of the jungle. So there's oodles of vine-swinging, plenty of fights with exotic animals, treacherous "civilized" whites, hordes of bloodthirsty savages, as well as some "innocent" water frolic-ing and, of course, the famous yell. Jane considers returning to England temporarily is the source of the conflict here. Cheetah provides humor and a saving-the-day or two. "Cheetah! Uum-gow-wah!!"

    What might have been. This could have been one of the best Tarzan movies of all time, except that there had to have been several cuts made because the movie was deemed to scary. Weissmuller and O'Sullivan were on top of their game as Tarzan and Jane. I really got a kick out of the supporting character, Rawlins. Maybe it was me, but Cheetah seemed really malicious or jealous of Tarzan. Oh well still an pretty good movie though.
