Tarzan Escapes (1936)



Reviews and Comments

The weakest of the six Weissmuller/O'Sullivan Tarzan films, this third in the series still has lots to enjoy. Friends of Jane journeys out into the jungle to find her and tell her about a fortune she stands to inherit if she returns to civilization. But their safari guide has his sights set on capturing Tarzan. Compared to future Tarzan films, this one had a relatively high budget, and it shows -- this is a rich, colorful film -- yet it is marred by a languid pace and an unusually dim-witted Tarzan.
