  • "Tarzan's Greatest Adventure"!

    The title tells it all - a superior adventure yarn with a superior supporting cast - and Gordon Scott is reaping the benefits of all the excellence.

  • The Best of Tarzan

    This is by far the best Tarzan movie.No Jane,no boy even no Cheta(only in beginning)The action is grand and so is the music.As a youth I was thilled..this hasn't changed with age.

    • 4/4/10

    Seeing it for the first time on TV, I could not belive what I was seeing; you don't expect much from a Tarzan movie. But far from just a popcorn movie, this one was good with solid characters, writing and acting. You have to just overlook the corny crocodile scenes, but the rest of the film more than makes up for it. A mature Tarzan film and the best without a doubt.

    One of the best produced Tarzan's in the post Johnny Weissmuller MGM movies, Gordon Scott makes a fine Tarzan. The early appearance of Sean Connery certainly adds to the film's interest. Plenty of adventure and action, the usual crodile fights. Generally well done.

    The very best of all Tarzan movies, bar none with the possible exception of it's follow up the following year "Tarzan the Magnificent" Gordon Scott has the iron clad physique of Steve Reeves and he appears to be in peak form for this classic.....Scott goes "up river" to chase down 5 murderers who robbed a settlement of dynamite needed to blow up a mine and kills several innocent tribesmen in the process, including the village doctor....Scott swears revenge on the murderers....along the way a saucy aviatrix played by the lovely Sarah Shane crash lands in the jungle near Tarzan and has to be rescued....she tags along with Tarzan and becomes his aide-de-camp as he looks for the killers one by one....and one by one they are put away - mostly in a nasty fashion....the climax with Scott and a nasty Anthony Quayle on the side of a mountain is as good as it gets....the musical score is rousing too and provides peak excitement....There is no Jane to tag along in this film...only a very small appearance by the chimp Cheetah.....Dont miss this one......now avail on DVD with all of Scott's Tarzan movies...check the internet.....

    This film is now released as part of the Warner Archive collection without proper restoration. This is a film that deserves better -- Warner should restore this film and make it available on Blu-ray. The exteriors were filmed in Africa -- No "backlot jungle" -- and the action and stars are all excellent. A real shame that this film, and it's counterpart, "Tarzan the Magnificent", have been treated so poorly.

  • The kind of action film we rarely see these days.

    • 8/8/09

    This is great well-paced action film with a top-notch cast including Gordon Scott, Anthony Quayle, Niall McGinnis and a young Sean Connery. I first saw this as a seven year old after a day on the beach at Coney Island and decades later my daughter also enjoyed the pace of this small but action-packed film.

  • Carmine is right

    • Gary McGibney
    • 3/24/08

    Tarzan's Greatest Adventure and Tarzan the Magnificent are the two best Tarzan movies ever made and should be available on DVD. Top notch casts (including Anthony Quayle and a young Sean Connery) and crews set a standard that, sadly, no other films in the series were able to match.

  • TARZAN'S GREATEST ADVENTURE needs to be on DVD !
