Tarzan finds a boy from a crashed plane and raises him with Jane in the jungle. A search party comes looking for the plane.
The titular Character of "Tarzan" does not appear until 7 minutes into the feature. The earliest appearance of all previously released Weissmuller "Tarzan" films up to that point.
Mr. Richard Lancing:
Mrs. Richard Lancing: I think we've seen about a million today.
The remains of a sunken western-style boat can be seen in the background of the underwater scene. This would imply that at some point in the past whites had somehow carried this boat all the way up the thousand-foot high escarpment, which makes no sense. It also conflicts with the concept that the escarpment was was supposedly a myth and undiscovered until approximately nine years before this scene, when the first white safari reached it. The boat was apparently overlooked when this scene was being prepared.
In the same scene one sees a sea turtle, which would be out of place in a river.
Originally released as Tarzan in Exile (1939), the film originally ended with the death of Jane. Protests by fans and Edgar Rice Burroughs forced the studio to reshoot much of the film so Jane survives.
