rumble that jungle.
for those of you wanting a different tarzan in the movies..great news..the timing is right. since that salad guard..or what ever his last name is.. flopped with his version of tarzan..the ivory coast is clear. i submit.. tarzan is suppose to be british.. ergo..idris elba time. that is right buddy..no more fake American accent for you. we can all see that awesome this and that everyone says you have. but that is not all.. we can have a female tarzan movie down the road..just call her tarzan..do not change the name.. whole lot of people could play her.. England and Africa and india have a lot of great female acting talent..just keep an eye and ear out.do not despair..there can still be a white tarzan too. only.. he has to look more like an ape pudgy..not that clean..more savage.also..to make him interesting..love triangle with a human woman and a female ape. of course the white ape tarzan must have poop as humor and a weapon. sorry..guess whitey still has some perks.i know all this crap sounds stupid..but some place ..a studio chief is thinking.. well..this movie was part of a film series that people may have enjoyed.it was not the best of a film series and it was not the worst.it became the lead acting talents legacy. if salad guard did not bury the idea of any more tarzan movies.. we will see if someone else has a legacy of their own.
The Best Tarzan Movie
This is the best TARZAN movie ever filmed. Johnny does a great job playing the role. Considering how bad most other TARZAN movies are from other studios, it's convincing on several levels. The action is non-stop and it seems that after the safari gets there TARZAN doesn't get a chance to relax. Sadly it was all down hill from here for future MGM TARZAN films. They are still the best but none equal this. The next movie TARZAN Escapes could have been as good, but we all know that story and how that film turned out.
Tarzan and Blah, Blah, Blah ...
- Mr. Blandings
Weissmuller proves, once again, that he can't act his way out of a rear-projection jungle. Not that this script requires anything remotely approaching acting. Hard to believe Clark Gable was offered the role of Tarzan. It would have had to be an entirely different production with entirely different production values to warrant an actor of his callibre. The pulp novel these horrible excuses for B-movies are based on aren't much better--just as violent, just as racially offensive, just as stupid.
20 years too soon
If only this film had been made when Playboy was around, what a fascinating pictorial it could have done with Maureen O'Sullivan (no double needed!) posing au natural, such an adorable face and a beguiling body!
Rated better then Tarzan The Ape Man
At the time it was released Tarzan an his Mate was rated by critics, fans as better then the first, and it is, this is the most action filled nonstop film you will ever see, and O'Sullivan did not do the nude scene, a double did, and neither the double or Weismmuller were nude they wore body suits. But there are many near nude shots, certain people after the film came out did not like the lack of clothing, and in the next film Tarzan Escapes the clothes for Tarzan and Jane were longer to cover more.
Tarzan and his mate
- dawn pollock
You do not see these types of movies anymore, the synopsis is non existant anymore. I just love these types of movies plus the first one, Tarzan the ape man. They just are fantastic old movies, just like the action movies, murder mysteries, crime dramas, like Charlie Chan and The Thin man for an example oh before I forget the comdies like eastside kids that became the dead end kids and then became bowery boys I absolutely love the bowery boys movies and I love when TCM shows the bowery boys every saturday, well getting back to the subject at hand, When I first saw the old cut out section of Tarzan and his mate the nude scene I was delighted that it was restored because you pretty much know why it was removed because it was a time factor because it is about 15minutes long so thats why. But I will say it again I love this movie!! I really do not think old movies should have been hacked like they were even if done for time frame factor!! Thank you Dawn
I just love the idea of Tarzan and Jane teaching each other about the joy and ecstasy of sexual union!
love that jane
I've read that Maureen O'sullivan did not do the nude scene, that a double was used because Maureen was not as good a swimmer as they wanted. However that is Maureen falling from the tree totally naked and there are contrary reports that she is also the underwater swimmer. With that skimpy jungle outfit she certainly would have had no qualms about being nude. She has to be the cutest little gal in films.
Tarzan and His mate (1934)
- James Higgins
80/100. One of the best of all the Tarzan films, and the second one with Johnny Weissmuller. Great pace, always of interest, good performances and the controversial nude swimming scene. Great film making.Good cinematography and an excellent pace. The fine quality of the production is one of the reasons the series was so successful.
