ONE ~ Call of the Jungle
"The jungle -- mysterious -- menacing
-- its one Law, the Survival of the Fittest."
OPENING SCENE: On a plantation, near the edge of the jungle.
CHARACTERS: Earl of Greystoke, alias Tarzan, Lady Jane, Albert
Werper (a soldier of fortune pretending to be a scientist). The Earl, Lady
Jane and Werper are all sitting in the living area of the manor discussing
Tarzan's last jungle adventure at the lost city of Opar.
FLASHBACK: La, who is the Princess of the Sun Worshippers, is the leader
of the Oparians who sacrifice victims to the sun god. Lady Jane is
brought in and tied to a stone altar where La is about to kill her with
a sacrificial knife. La is in love with Tarzan and wants to remove
her rival Jane. She vows to have no other mate but Tarzan. Meanwhile,
Tarzan yells for Tantor, his elephant friend, and sets out to rescue her.
As the apeman shows up at Opar he enters the ceremonial cave just as La
is about to bring down the knife to sacrifice Jane. He grabs the
knife away from La, unties his mate, fights off a hoard of Opar beastmen,
and leads Jane back to the plantation. As the flashback draws to
a close, La vows to have Tarzan for her own.
SCENE: The three discuss Tarzan's proposed trip to the Temple of Opar.
Greystoke is anxious to go but Lady Jane, who sees Tarzan's knife fall
from his gear hanging on the wall -- a bad omen -- begs him not to go.
About this time, Werper, who feigns tiredness, heads for his sleeping quarters
but really hides behind a curtain listening to the conversation between
Tarzan and Jane. Tarzan says that he needs to get the gold from the
temple to prevent the sale of his estate back in England but Jane fears
for his life or that he will be captured by La. Greystoke says that he
will begin his journey to the temple tomorrow night. The scene ends
with Tarzan rounding up his loincloth and knife in preparation for the
next day's trip.
SCENE: A slave market a few hours north of the plantation. Achmet
Zek, a nomad chief, and enemy of Tarzan, watches as slave women are being
sold at the square. He visualizes Lady Jane as a potential slave.
The phony scientist, Werper, approaches Zek and tells him that Tarzan
is heading to the city of Opar tonight to get the gold. Zek tells
Werper to follow Tarzan while he visits Jane at the plantation. Tarzan
begins his journey to Opar but senses the approach of his old enemy, Numa
the Lion. Back at the plantation, people are starting to disappear, as
Zek makes his way with a couple of his cronies to locate Jane's room. Jane,
upon hearing a commotion outside, turns out the lights but Zek and his
henchmen enter and take her off to Zek's camp.
Meanwhile, on the jungle trail, Tarzan fights an attacking lion while
Werper looks on.

On the Jungle Trail to the Temple of Opar -- where treasure
beyond price lies buried!
watches Tarzan wrestle with the lion, and sees him pull the knife out of
Numa's belly and stand with one foot on the dead beast's body. Tarzan
gives a series of "terrifying" victory yells.
The next day at Zek's camp where Lady Jane is held captive, he directs
his slave girls to bring Jane from her tent. Tarzan's defiant mate
orders Zek to return her to Tarzan but she is unsuccessful. He decides
to bring in a sand specialist - Abdullah, the Sand Diviner, who will show
her the fate he has planned for Tarzan. Abdullah prepares the sand
and then draws some pictures showing the death of Tarzan by two Arabs.
Meanwhile, two natives with spears spot Tarzan swinging from his vine
between trees. One native brings Tarzan down with a spear to the
Back at Zek's camp, he tells Lady Jane that she will become one of his
wives or be sold on the auction block. Jane is then escorted back to her
The scene now changes to a wild ceremony at Temple of Opar where La
prays to the Flame god to deliver Tarzan to her.
Meanwhile a sand storm is brewing outside as Werper follows a miraculously
recovered Tarzan who is taking a secret entrance into the treasure chambers
of Opar. Tarzan goes to the center of the chamber where he uncovers a stash
of gold bars -- apparently a legacy of the people of ancient Atlantis.
Back at Zek's camp, Jane is brought in to respond to his ultimatum but
the sand storm becomes worse and tears apart the tents. As Zek runs from
the tent, Jane makes her way back to her tent.
At the temple, La asks for a sacrifice for the gods to calm the storm.
Tarzan prepares to take away six bars of gold. Werper hears some
lions running around the cave and dashes out of the chamber. Werper
then stumbles into La's chamber of worship and she orders her people to
seize him for the sacrifice. As the storm rages on, the huge pillars
at the temple entrance crash down and the cave ceiling collapses and buries
Tarzan with his gold stash.

In the path of a Simoon -- the ancient Temple of Opar, where
Lord Greystoke, known to the jungle as Tarzan the Tiger, has gone for hidden
treasure known only to him.
dust clears from the cave-in, Tarzan regains consciousness but is suffering
from amnesia. He wanders into another room and finds a big chest that he
struggles to open. He finally opens the lid and discovers the lost
jewels of Opar. He begins playing with them but considers them only
"pretty pebbles". He stuffs a few into a cloth bag. He then makes
his way to the Chamber of Flaming God in time to grab La's sacrificial
knife before it strikes Werper on the ceremonial altar. Tarzan does not
recognize the love-sick La but rescues the pleading Werper after vanquishing
the men of Opar.
Meanwhile, Achmet Zek's men are trying to clean up the damage caused
by the windstorm. Jane wraps herself in an old animal hide, lifts the back
flap of the tent and escapes into the jungle. Soon after, Achmet enters
the tent and discovers that her cot is empty. In a fury he sends his guards
out to find her, threatening to put them to the lash if they are unsuccessful.
Tarzan has led Werper to the safety of the jungle but comes down with
an unbearable headache just as they prepare to camp for the night.
Jane is also making her way through the jungle in her attempts to elude
Taglat, the Ape, an old enemy of Tarzan, attacks Werper by the campfire
but Tarzan leaps from the trees above and scares off the beast. Unfortunately
Taglat later spots Jane and follows her, seeking revenge on Tarzan. Back
at the campfire, Tarzan examines the bag of "pebbles" he had taken from
Opar. Crafty Werper notices that they are diamonds and pretends to
go to sleep while Tarzan buries the bag of pebbles. When Tarzan falls
asleep Werper digs up the treasure and raises his dagger to kill the sleeping
apeman. Jane races through the jungle to escape Taglat but she stumbles
and is soon in the clutches of the ape.

Taglet, the ape, captures Jane, she lets out a horrified scream which stops
Werper from plunging his knife into the sleeping Tarzan. Tarzan leaps
to a tree to locate the source of the sceam and sees Taglet running through
the woods with Jane slung over his back. Tarzan gives his ape cry,
Taglet drops the unconscious Jane and climbs up to wrestle Tarzan in the
trees. Tarzan defeats the ape by throwing him to the ground and climbs
down to comfort Jane. She tells him that Achet's people told her
that he was dead but although he seems to recognize her voice, the bewildered
amnesiac Tarzan asks how she knows his name as he does not know her. Meanwhile,
La has followed Tarzan into the jungle and has watched the reunion between
Jane and Tarzan. Her band from Opar overcome and capture the Greystokes
SCENE: Next day at the Greystoke plantation. Achmet makes an unsuccessful
search of every room in his attempt to recapture Jane. Werper shows up
and tells Achmet about the treasure vaults of Opar and that Tarzan has
lost his memory. He later indicates that he things that the scream he had
heard the previous night probably came from Jane. Werper tells Achmet
that he will stay behind to get some rest and meet up with him later at
his camp. Achmet agrees but doesn't trust him and orders his men
to keep an eye on him. Werper goes upstairs to examine the jewels he stole
from Tarzan. Achmet enters the room just as Werper is putting away
the bag. Werper draws his revolver but Achmet beats a hasty retreat.
Meanwhile, back at the jungle camp, La catches Jane trying to untie
the captured Tarzan. La decides to set him free so that she can force him
to choose between Jane and herself. She asks him to return with her
to the temple so they can rule together. Both women plead their case
for Tarzan's affection but, even though he thinks he recognizes their voices,
he shoves them both aside. He says he has no wife and desires no mate,
rather he chooses a life in the jungle. A spurned La orders the Oparians
to prepare for a double sacrifice. They tie Tarzan to a tree and one of
them throws a spear at the apeman's chest.
5 ~ Condemned to Die
Oparian's spear slams into the tree next to Tarzan's head just as Achmet
and his gang arrive on horses. As Achmet's men engage the Oparians,
one of the horsemen captures and rides off with Jane. Tarzan breaks free
and joins in the battle places La up in a tree out of harms way.
The horsemen ride off and La again tries to charm Tarzan into accompanying
her as King of Opar. She puts a necklace around his neck but this suddenly
reminds him of the jewels that he buried back in the jungle. He returns
the necklace to La and says that he must first find the 'pebbles' before
he could consider returning to Opar.
SCENE: THE GREYSTOKE HOME: Werper looks down from this upstairs
room and sees Achmet sneaking up the stairs with a drawn knife. Achmet
enters the room and discovers that Werper's bed is empty just as he hears
Werper ride off on a horse. He scrambles down to his own mount and gives
SCENE: JUNGLE: Tarzan returns to the spot where he buried the jewels
but discovers they are gone. He realizes that Werper must have stolen his
pebbles and vents his anger by log-breaking and ape-yell antics. From a
tree-top perch he sees Achmet pursuing and catching Werper on horseback.
They fight and Werper stabs Achmet and steals his ring. Tarzan races to
the combatants but Werper rides off leaving Tarzan in a fit of destructive
anger: pulling trees out by their roots, beating his chest and smashing
SCENE: ACHMET'S CAMP: Werper rides in looking for Jane and convinces
Achmet's lieutenant, Mohammed Beyd, that Achmet died when his horse fell
on him, and that before he died he had given him his ring as a gesture
of trust. Beyd directs him to Jane's tent after Werper tells him that they
should sell her in the slave market and share the profits. Werper visits
Jane and outlines a plan for her escape. Later, Beyd also visits Jane and
tells her that he can save her from Werper's plan to sell her as a slave.
All she has to do is to "cooperate" with him and he makes lecherous advances.
Jane's screams of protest attract Werper. Beyd draws a gun but is himself
shot as the two men grapple for the gun. Tarzan climbs over the main
gate of the camp, and swings on a vine to crash through the roof of Jane's
hut to attack Werper. During the struggle Tarzan retrieves his bag of pebbles
from Werper's shirt and pushes the man to the ground. Achmet's gang arrives
and Werper screams that Tarzan has killed Beyd. The chapter ends with Tarzan
being overrun by his attackers.

with superhuman strength, tosses off Achmet's henchmen, grabs Werper, raises
him over his head and tosses him out the nearest window. As Tarzan
flexes his muscles, the rest of Achmet's gang run for cover. As Tarzan
is about to leave the hut Jane grabs him and says, " Are you still a madman?
Don't you know me, your wife?" He shakes his head and says, "I know
you are a friend but other than that my mind is as blank as an unwritten
check." When Tarzan and Jane leave, Werper rounds up Achmet's men
and promises to give them a reward of their choosing if they capture the
white woman. Jane, hoping to help Tarzan's get his memory back, takes him
to his parents' cabin where the apes had found and nursed him when he had
been orphaned by his parents' deaths. She shows him the books from
which he had learned to read but Tarzan has only fleeting memories and
says he is tired. As he leaves to make a sleeping nest in a nearby tree,
Jane gives him back his knife and he gives her the pebbles for safe keeping.
Werper and his gang reach Tarzan's hut and looks through the window where
he sees that Jane is asleep on a cot. Werper enters, lights a candle
and awakens Lady Jane with a hand cupped over her mouth. He lies that Achmet's
gang have captured Tarzan and are looking for her. She doesn't trust
Werper but agrees to pretend to be his prisoner so as to fool the gang.
Tarzan awakens with weird thoughts of the night before and a terrific headache.
When he discovers that Jane is not in the hut he thinks she has stolen
his pebbles and experiences another temper tantrum.
SCENE: SLAVE AUCTION: Werper has put Jane in a holding cell with some
of the other slave girls. When she is led to the auction block she realizes
that Werper has betrayed her. Werper admits that she is to be sold but
that he will be the highest bidder and he asks her for the pouch of jewels
so they will not be stolen from her. She gives him the pouch. A bidding
frenzy for Jane ensues. Werper makes only one bid and then breaks his promise
-- letting a sheik outbid him and haul her away. Jane curses Werper for
having betrayed her.
Meanwhile, Tarzan is looking for the woman who stole his pebbles --
he hitches a ride on Tantor and smashes through the city gate, scattering
natives as he arrives. The sheik rides off with Jane on his camel!
7 ~ In Deadly Peril
Tarzan, mounted on Tantor, smashes through the city gate he sees Jane riding
off on a camel with an arab. He gives pursuit. Werper is chased into an
alley by the gang members who had helped him capture Jane. They had seen
the slave woman give him a pouch and they demand their share of the jewels.
They remove the pouch from inside Werper's shirt but are amazed to find
that it contains only gravel. Jane had outsmarted him by making a contents
switch back at the Greystoke cabin. Werper talks one of the men into accompanying
him in pursuing the slave woman to find out what she has done with the
jewels. Jane hears Tantor's trumpeting call and calls to Tarzan. Tarzan
leaps for a vine which he uses to swing to the racing camel and to knock
off the Arab. He ends his struggle with the Arab by putting him in a headlock
and chocking him to death. He then angrily orders Jane to "Give me back
my pretty pebbles". She says that she did not take them and reminds him
that she is his wife. Tarzan argues that she is a total stranger.
Werper and the raider approach and shoot a warning shot. Tarzan leads Jane
to shelter in a cave inhabited by lions and he seals the entrance with
a large rock. Jane tells Tarzan that she hid the pebbles in his jungle
hut and keeps trying to jolt his memory back to him by reminding him that
they are Lord and Lady Greystoke. She points out the Greystoke crest on
his hunting knife. Still he remembers nothing and they agree that they
should return to the cabin. At that moment Jane warns Tarzan that
their pursuers have pointed a rifle at them through the entrance -- just
as Tarzan spies the evil eyes of a beast in the darkness at the back of

and the weapon accidentally fires and shoots the lion to death in
the far corner of the cave. Having lost their rifle Werper and his
henchman run off to hide in the bushes waiting for Tarzan to appear.
Tarzan rolls the rock away from the cave entrance and tells Jane he will
find transportation to take them back to the cabin where Jane has hidden
the pebbles -- he now has some idea of value of these little stones since
so many people are trying so hard to steal them. He then climbs to the
trees to use his strange cry to call for Tantor. Tantor kneels, they
climb aboard the elephant's back, and start the long ride to Tarzan's parents'
cabin. When they return to the cabin for the evening Jane tries frantically
to stir memories that she is his wife. He leaves to sleep in the trees
while Tantor stands guard beside the sleeping Jane who clutches the rifle
At daybreak, Jane heads to the nearby river for a bath. Tarzan awakens
and watches from above as she undresses and then he races nearer as she
enters the water. She reminisces about when they first met but Tarzan seems
to remember nothing. Instead, he sits and plays with Jane's rifle while
she dresses. Werper and his partner have trailed them to the cabin and
now spy upon them. Tarzan accidentally fires the rifle which sets him off
again -- he bends the gun barrel into a horseshoe shape. Jane is not impressed...
and scolds him for destroying their only weapon. The villains race to cabin
and ransack it in their search for the jewels. They then make a trap to
capture Tarzan when he enters the building: a rope noose hanging from the
ceiling. They then lie in wait at the back of the cabin, ready to pull
the drop the noose when Tarzan walks under it. Jane and Tarzan return and
retrieve a container hidden in the wall. They sit together on the cot and
take the pebbles out of the container. While Werper watches through the
window, Jane tries to get Tarzan to remember where he found the pebbles.
When Tarzan walks from the cot, the noose falls and the apeman is dragged
to the window and clubbed over the head. He falls facedown on the table
and Werper leaps in to finish him off with his knife.

the attention of the ape Chulk, brother of the Taglet who wants to avenge
his brother's death. La's party also hear the cry and they move into the
clearing where they capture Jane. La tells her that Tarzan is now hers
and turns her over to Werper who asks her for the jewels. Jane doesn't
cooperate and is bound and hidden in the undergrowth. When they hear Tarzan
returning from his search for food they prepare a trap. La poses as a sleeping
Jane in the clearing while her men hide on top of a nearby hut with a net
to throw over Tarzan. When Tarzan approaches the disguised La she begs
him to return with her as her King of Opar. He spurns her and demands to
know what she has done with Jane. He doesn't believe her when she tells

Werper watch from a distance as Tantor lowers his trunk to pull Tarzan
to safety and the monkey gives news of Jane's whereabouts. Tarzan takes

tells her he likes her more than La, and they resume their journey to Opar
with hopes of restoring Tarzan's memory. La and Werper are close behind.
On the way to Opar they scare Numa away from a fresh kill and satisfy their
hunger and use the carcass to distract crocodiles at the river crossing...

and they continue on to Opar. La is still plotting to get rid of Jane and
taking Tarzan for her mate.
Back at the Greystoke estate in England, Sir Henry Beardsley,
advisor to the Greystokes discusses the situation with Philip Annersley,
Tarzan's cousin who is next in line to the Lord Greystoke title. They are
concerned that they haven't received news or money from Greystoke. Annersley
volunteers to go to Africa to look for Tarzan. When Beardsley leaves,
Annersley re-reads a from Al Werper where he indicates Lord Greystoke and
Lady Jane have fallen into his trap and he hopes to find the treasure soon
-- and that he should come to Africa at once. Beardsley burns the letter
and prepares to leave.

climbs a tree to determine the location of the temple. Tarzan is starting
to get headaches and remembers being here before but says that it looks
different this time as the entrance is blocked by fallen pillars.

has seen them and warns La who prepares a trap. Tarzan's memory starts
to return and he leads Jane to the secret entrance of the treasure vault.

jewels and once again pledges her love for her mate, Werper enters and

combatants' grappling takes them to the edge of a narrow ledge where they
appear fall to their doom.

followers have started the ceremony for Jane's sacrifice and she reminds
her that Tarzan is not around to save her this time. Tarzan, finally regains
consciousness but has a terrible headache. His memory is partially restored.

events he was involved in. When he sees Werper trying to open the treasure

recognizes Jane's screams for help and races into the middle of the sacrificial
14 ~ Tarzan's Rage
Tarzan enters the Altar Chamber he recognizes Jane as his wife. He fights
off the Oparians and reaches Jane's side. Jane tells La that Tarzan has
regained his memory and that they can now lead her to the lost treasure
of Opar. The chief of the Oparians offers them their freedom if they
can do this. Werper escapes with Tarzan's sack of jewels to find co-conspirator
Annersley. When the Greystokes and Oparians arrive at the Treasure Vaults,
Jane and Tarzan agree that their love for each other is all the treasure
they need and the Oparians plan to seal the Chamber forever. Before the
Greystokes leave for the jungle, La again pledges her love and predicts
that Tarzan will return to her someday. On their way through the jungle
Jane describes Werper's treachery and Tarzan takes to the trees to shout
an ape cry and look for signs of the villain. Panic-stricken Werper reaches
the Greystoke estate where Annersley has taken over as the new master.
He has cabled Sir Beardsley that Tarzan and Jane have perished in the jungle
without obtaining money to save the Greystoke estate. The two men fight
over the jewels of Opar that Werper has stolen. A "terrifying" ape cry

Annersley when Werper says he will free Tarzan if Jane will show him the
shortcut to the treasure. Meanwhile Tarzan calls his animal friends with
a blood-curdling ape cry and is rescued by Tantor. While Tarzan races to
the rescue on Tantor's back, the treacherous Annersley is attacked and
killed by a tiger. A tiger then comes after Werper and Jane. Werper runs
down the trail while Jane climbs a tree for safety. The tiger catches up
with Werper and tears him apart. Jane explains what has happened when Tarzan
arrives. Tarzan finds the jewels on Werper's body and they realize that
this will be sufficient to save their English estate. The ape man expresses
his joy by hugging Tantor and voicing the victory cry of the bull ape.
When they return to their jungle home they cable Beardsley with the news
that they are not dead and that they have money to save Greystoke Estate.
Jane notices that Tarzan has permanently attached his leopard skin and
knife. He promises that he will not take down the knife again and that,
"Fear is now gone and love will remain with us forever."

Lady Jane are dressed to the nines. Lord Greystoke rearranges Annersleys
telegram to tell Sir Beardsley that they are not dead and that they have
the money to save the estate in England. He signs it, Lord Greystoke. Lady
Jane glances over at the wall where her husband has hung his Tarzan garb
and knife. The knife is now latched to the wall with twine. He ends the
adventure by saying, "The knife will not fall again. There will be no more
omens of bad luck. Fear is now gone and love will remain with us forever".
