Adventure movies can be pretty hit-or-miss with me, but I did enjoy Tarzan, the Ape Man. This was the first time I’d seen any of the Johnny Weissmuller Tarzan movies and now I’m interested in seeing more of the series. Maureen O’Sullivan was very likable as Jane, Johnny made the perfect Tarzan, and there are plenty of exciting moments to be had. Never mind the very dated rear projection and special effect shots, it’s still a very entertaining movie.
