Tarzan The Ape Man (1932) Review


Good
Him Tarzan, her Jane. And with that, one of cinema's most enduring screen icons was born, fully formed from Edgar Rice Burroughs' classic books. Presented for your DVD pleasure is the original Tarzan the Ape Man (conveniently bundled with the other five Johnny Weissmuller "Tarzan" movies). In retrospect, there's not much to Tarzan after all. He's a handsome brute. She's (Maureen O'Sullivan) a lippy debutante with stars in her eyes. Together they make movie history as they battle lions and swing from vine-covered trapezes, but ultimately there's too little story to hold Tarzan's antics together. Countless directors would take a stab at Tarzan in the coming decades, and ironically enough it was Disney that pulled it off best in the end.
