    If one had never seen one of the other adventures of the King of the Jungle, one might think, "hmm, not bad." But if you had, as I have, you would spend the time noting how this is like leftovers from other Tarzan films scrapped together and "they won't know the difference anyway." The weakest of the lot if you ask me.

    Silly, but enjoyable Tarzan outing involves the well cast Tom Conway as a great white hunter tricking Tarzan, Jane, and Boy (Johnny Weissmuller, Maureen O'Sullivan, and Johnny Sheffield) into helping him find some hidden gold. The group, as usual, runs afoul angry natives, and Tarzan has to rescue all of the white people from the racist native stereotypes. Racist stereotypes of native people never come off well to modern eyes, but besides that ugliness, this remains an entertaining Tarzan adventure, particularly when you have George Sander's real-life sound-alike brother as one of the villains.

    The point when the original concept becomes formula. Enjoyable, but predictable.

    Offers all that you would expect from a Johnny Weissmuller/Maureen O'Sullivan 'Tarzan' caper; consistently entertaining and engaging enough to see its audience through overlong swimming sequences and animal stock footage. Admittedly unexceptional compared to their other outings, but harmless fun nonetheless.

    Tarzan saves Jane & Boy from crocodiles, scoundrels, a fearsome tribe, and a herd of stampeding elephants.

    You can tell that they were running out of steam, but it's still Tarzan.

    A fast paced, enjoyable entry in the Tarzan series, this time with Tom Conway as a suave villain, greedy for the gold in Tarzan's lagoon. The finale with multiple crocodile attacks is great fun.
