Tarzan the Mighty was originally scheduled to be a twelve chapter serial . . . as you can see by the "ad" produced here. . . and the first chapters were released with this intention. However, due to the sensational reception the first chapters received from the theatre going public, it was decided to stretch the length of the film to fifteen episodes. The cast, credits and chapter titles follow . . . and you will notice that the chapter titles of the film differ from the ones for the fictionized version of the serial.
