I watch Tarzan's Greatest Adventure and Tarzan the Magnificent, and I see a story of Tarzan of the Apes, mighty hunter, mighty fighter struggling to hunt down 3 or 4 ordinary bad guys. I think these 2 movies are often considered the best of the series based only on their titles.
I'm critisizing the Gordon Scott Tarzan movies, but I could just as much criticize the Weissmullers as well. But I still love them. I think maybe partly, because they were engrained in my soul as a young boy. bOb.

I do like the Weissmuller films quite a lot, and I think he played the role well, but that very high,flat, nasal voice of his was a real turn-off for me, and the constant use of a stunt double in the fast-motion vine swinging scenes (with the trapeze bar clearly visible) made Tarzan's "travellin' scenes" seem a little ludicrious to me.

Also, later in the movie, when he is exiting the trailer and is suddenly surrounded by a gang of circus crewmen, there should have been a spectacular fight scene. Dissappointing.
Tarzan and the Amazons should have ended with all the main characters captured by the Amazons and sentenced to the arena to die at the claws and fangs of hungry lions. Tarzan would save the good guys and let the lions have their way with the bad guys. This would have been a much more dramatic and exciting finale.
Like I said. I've seen them too often. I keep wondering how much greater they could have been with bigger budgets and more creative stunts and special effects. Oh well. Too late now.
