Maureen O'Sullivan's costume in this film was so brief that during a swimming scene, one of her breasts was exposed. This scene was included in an early edit of the film, but it was cut to appease censors.
Older television prints of "Tarzan and His Mate" run 93 minutes. Among the deleted segments are the nude swimming scene, some brief footage of bare-breasted natives, and some of the more graphic violence.
CENSORSHIP CHANGES:- 1. The Hays Office insisted on cuts of 11 minutes of nude swimming (a fully nude Josephine McKim played Jane). This had some public showings, before...- 2. The New York censors cut a further scene involving male nudity.- This was the version that eventually went on general release.- RESTORED VERSIONS: Ted Turner had the cut scenes restored when a full positive was found when he took over MGM.- This is the 116 min. version that is available on VHS.
