As Jane and the local tribeswomen are abducted one by one by the wild Lionians, Tarzan attempts to persuade their prince to accept a potent medicament for his ailing men, while the girls face certain death. Can Tarzan set them free?
Hurd Hatfield, who plays the prince of the Lionian tribe, had his two best roles at the very beginning of his career, debuting opposite Katharine Hepburn in Dragonseed, followed by his "big break," playing the title role in The Picture of Dorian Gray (1945). The fact that, five years later, he didn't even have billing on the poster for an RKO Tarzan film is indicative of how quickly his fortunes diminished. Hatfield continued working into the early 1990s, mostly in B movies and on television, but was never again to achieve the promise of those first two roles.
Tarzan: Lola call.
Jane: When Lola call, Tarzan run.
Tarzan: Jane run, too.
Jane: Yeah, Jane run, too!
The "sound effect" of a warbling jungle bird, heard throughout this film, sounds suspiciously like the work of a human bird caller, rather than the call of an actual avian creature.
