PLOT

A well-equipped safari flying in an expensive plane takes a low swoop to admire flamingoes and is struck by them. It crashes on the verge of a precipice and Tarzan helps them out just before the wreckage falls to the valley floor below. The ape man leads the five passengers out of the jungle. En route white hunter Tusker Hawkins tries to sell them to the Oparian chief. Captured by the Oparians and nearly sacrificed to their lion god, the party is again saved by Tarzan.


TRIVIA
  • Tagline: All New And The Greatest Of All!
  • Gordon Scott got along well with the natives involved in the movie. A Masai warrior nicknamed him "Mtu Ule Na Panda Miti Minegu" (Warrior Who Climbs Tall Trees).
  • On the set, Gordon Scott won a bet by capturing and riding a wild giraffe for five minutes.
  • A 500-pound lion with whom Gordon Scott had worked for over a month tore open his leg (32 stitches).
  • Doodles Fletcher (Wilfrid Hyde-White) has continual trouble lighting his cigarette, but each time Cheetah takes the gold lighter from his hand and ignites it for him effortlessly.
  • The girls have poetic and evocative names, Diana Penrod (Betta St. John) and Gamage Dean (Yolande Donlan).


  • Artist David Hoover has created a matched set of DVD jackets for the Warner Archive releases.
