Tarzan and His Mate (1934)



Reviews and Comments

Johnny Weissmuller's second outing as Tarzan is considered by most to be the best and most entertaining Tarzan film ever made. The masses are quite correct. The portrayal of an illiterate Tarzan aside (in the books, Tarzan was educated at Oxford before returning again to the jungle), this series entry has the best of everything -- great performances by the best Tarzan and the best Jane (Maureen O'Sullivan), a solid story, and exhilarating jungle action. Maureen O'Sullivan, incidently, was one of the few Janes that looked like she belonged in the jungle and could take care of herself. That's a plus, and so is the breathtaking footage of the jungle animals.
