Tarzan's Peril (1951) -- [5.5] -- Lex Barker's third outing in the loincloth has him caught up with gunrunners, warring tribes, and even a man-eating jungle plant. The script is more scatter-shot than usual, but Barker seems more comfortable in the role than before, playing Tarzan as less brutish and more talkative (though still a stranger to most pronouns and articles). Virginia Huston makes a terrible Jane -- you don't believe for a second that such a metropolitan woman would live, much less survive, in the jungle. Other supporting players do their best to elevate the material, including George Macready as the villainous Radijeck and Dorothy Dandridge as a defiant tribal queen. "Tarzan's Peril" is unique in that it is the first Tarzan film that actually shot in Africa, although it's fairly obvious none of the leading cast were on location.

The ending of this movie was so insipid and devoid of merit that you will need a can of deodorant to get through it; what a stinker!

Lex Barker took over as Tarzan, after, I think, they plain just wore oult Old Johnny Weismuller.Took awhile to get use to him, but I liked him too.The beautiful Dorothy Dandrich is in this!!!!

This one is notable for doing something that should of been done all along in a Tarzan movie, and that's featuring black actors in strong rolls. Other then that, it's more of the same of course. White guys fucking about the jungle get on Tarzan's tits and he sorts them all out.
