Tarzan's New York Adventure (1942)



Reviews and Comments

"Stone jungle."

The illiterate interpretation of the Tarzan character introduced in Johnny Weissmuller's first Tarzan film, Tarzan, the Ape Man, is actually used to advantage in this unique entry in the series. Boy is kidnapped and taken to New York, and Tarzan and Jane come after him. Since Weissmuller's Tarzan had never ventured into civilization before, there are plenty of opportunities for some amusing fish-out-of-water scenes. Watching Tarzan romp about the skyscrapers like he would his vine-filled jungle is a blast, and Cheetah taking on the big city is a riot. Regrettably, this was Maureen O'Sullivan's last outing as Jane. Elmo Lincoln, the first film Tarzan, has a cameo.
