When they come to the birthday party of King Farrod (Charles Trowbridge), the Greystoke family - Tarzan (Johnny Weissmuller), Jane (Brenda Joyce) and Boy (Johnny Sheffield) - meet Tanya Rawlins' (Patricia Morison) hunting expedition. Tanya is hell-bent on capturing as many jungle animals as possible to restock zoos worldwide after the shortages of World War II - but she's not very lucky: All King Farrod allows her is to catch two animals of each species, while Tarzan, who rules the country opposite the river from King Farrods, won't allow her to hunt at all ...

However, Tanya has a greedy trapper, Paul Weir (Barton MacLane), who gets paid by the animal he catches, and who decides to change the policy in King Farrod's realm ... by having the King killed, his son Prince Suli (Maurice Tauzin) sent over a cliff, and his nephew Ozira (Ted Hecht) - who for a percentage of Weir's gains is much more sympathetic to the hunters' needs - installed as new king.

When Tarzan though realizes that the hunters all of a sudden hunt with no regards for any quota, he calls all the animals over to his side of the river ... eventually prompting the hunters to follow them. But one night, Tarzan sneaks into the hunters' camp, releases all the animals and hides the hunters' weapons ... and without weapons, they are in grave danger in the jungle. Tarzan then promises them to take them safely to the other side of the river and return their weapons - on the condition that they never again cross the river.

However, Cheetah has taken an interest in Tanya's lipstick and gives away the hiding place of the weapons, plus a messenger has made it through to Ozira, who sends his troops ... and in the end, Tarzan has to stampede his friends the elephants to put a few things right, and soon all the baddies get their just desserts, only huntress Tanya, who never wanted to break any laws let alone kill somebody in the first place, and her trusted sidekick Smitty (Walter Scott) are allowed to escape. And in the end it turns out that Prince Suli survived his fall from the cliffs, and soon enough he is installed as the new, rightful King.

 

So-so jungle adventure, featuring nothing but a tried-and-true story told in a run-or-the-mill kind of way. Though the film isn't essentially bad, it also has little to recommend it. If you are a die-hard fan of jungle films though, you might be moderately entertained.

 

By the way, Johnny Sheffiled's last appearance as Boy, as he no longer really fitted the role, being 16 years of age, taller than Brenda Joyce and his voice had already broken.

Soon though, Sheffield would again pop up as the title character of Monogram's Bomba the Jungle Boy series - not too far of a stretch from his Boy-role ...
