On their way to fetch Jane (Brenda Joyce), who has just returned from the Second World War, Tarzan (Johnny Weissmuller) and Boy (Johnny Sheffield) stumble upon Athena (Shirley O'Hara), member of an amazon tribe residing in a hidden city, and save her from a leopard attack. And because Tarzan is always the gentleman, he carries her back to the hidden city, and is allowed to leave again by the city's Queen (Maria Ouspenskaya) only because he is a friend of the amazons and won't give away the secret of their city.

Jane though has brought a bunch of scientists led by Sir Henderson (Henry Stephenson) with her, who are more than a little interested once they hear about the hidden city and its many treasures (hidden cities, it seems, are always rich in gold), and Henderson tries to persuade Tarzan to lead them to the city ... but to no avail, Tarzan has already realized there's something fishy.

Boy however is fascinated by the scientists and their many gadgets (like microscopes, magnifying glasses and binoculars), and eventually can be persuaded to take them to the hidden city (which he does mainly because Tarzan has always kept the city a secret even from him). The amazons however are less than pleased when they stumble upon the uninvited visitors, and soon enough they have them incarcerated ... but since he and Tarzan have saved her life once, Boy can persuade Athena to let them out.

Once out though, the scientists' guide Ballister (Barton MacLane) shows his true colours and in an attempt to wipe the place clean he forces everyone to carry as much of the amazons' city's gold as possible, and when Henderson and Athena protest, he shoots them. Ultimately though, the amazons are alarmed, slaughter most of the scientists but Ballister and Splivens (J.M.Kerrigan), who manage to escape with the amazons' holy relics, and Boy, whom the amazon's capture and put to trial - and wouldn't  you know it, Boy is sentenced to death ...

Meanwhile though, chimp Cheetah has brought Tarzan the news, and he rushes to Amazon City, just in time to cross paths with Ballister and Splivens whom he somehow makes lose their lives in quicksand. Then he picks up the amazons' relics and brings them to Amazon City. Upon seeing their relics return, the amazons release Boy, and yup, we have a happy ending ...


In its best moments, Tarzan and the Amazons is high on camp value, but unfortunately, a muddled script keep the film from becoming a kitsch masterpiece. Especially the exposition is way too long, taking up almost half the film and telling us almost nothing except that Jane has returned (and she doesn't even feature prominently in the rest of the film), that she has brought some scientists with her, and that there is a hidden city. Only when the action actually shifts to the hidden city does the film get entertaining, but that's not until late in the movie, and for some reason, Tarzan is suspiciously absent from that action ...

Not one of the better or funnier entries into the series.
