Movie Reviews

An Expensive Collection of Tarzan Movies
Steve Rawlings | Denver, CO USA | 07/01/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"There are several sets of Tarzan DVD's available. Unfortunately, many share the same movies.

The Johnny Weismuller set, (The Tarzan Collection Starring Johnny Weissmuller), with six movies on 4 discs contains the best movies. The DVD picture and sound quality are good for movies that are over 60 years old.

The purpose of my review is to compare this set, (Tarzan: King of the Jungle), with a comparable set, (Tarzan 5 Movies on 2 Discs). Both sets contain the following movies and actors:

"Tarzan and the Trappers" - Gordon Scott
"Tarzan the Fearless" - Buster Crabbe
"Tarzan's Revenge" - Glenn Morris
"Tarzan and the Green Goddess" - Bruce Bennett

This set contains a second Bruce Bennett movie, "The New Adventures of Tarzan."

The other set (Tarzan 5 Movies on 2 Discs) contains an Elmo Lincoln movie, "Tarzan of the Apes," in lieu of the second Bruce Bennett movie.

The difference in costs between the two sets as of the date of this review is over $15. This set, (Tarzan: King of the Jungle), is priced over $25. The other set, (Tarzan 5 Movies on 2 Discs) is priced under $10.

If price is a concern, the other set (Tarzan 5 Movies on 2 Discs) offers the better value.
Off-brand Ape Men
Steven Utley | 03/12/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The TARZAN, KING OF THE JUNGLE set is probably of lasting interest only to Tarzan completists, but it does nicely complement THE TARZAN COLLECTION. The latter comprises Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's six Johnny Weissmuller/Maureen O'Sullivan pairings -- the name-brand Ape-Man flicks of the 1930s; KING OF THE JUNGLE showcases the same decade's Brand X Tarzans, Buster Crabbe, Bruce Bennett, and Glenn Morris, as well as one of Weissmuller's successors, Gordon Scott."
Slick packaging of public domain films
Patrick W. Crabtree | Lucasville, OH USA | 06/19/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"These films are all old black-and-white Tarzan films which have come into the public domain which means that anyone can copy and sell them.

This is about the nicest packaging I've seen of these great old flicks but, as others have pointed out, you can get the same films of equal print quality in a two-disc set at a much cheaper price. Here is the deal that will get you the same set of films:

AMC: Tarzan of the Apes: Collection

If you enjoy the old black-and-white Tarzan films then you'll really enjoy these particular selections -- but don't be fooled by the colorful packaging into thinking that this is something new or improved!"
