Officially, Doctor Lazar (Edgar Barrier) is a benign physician who is especially popular with the nativs because he is half native himself ... but secretly, he also leads the Leopard Cult together with High Priestess Lea (Acquanetta), a cult whose followers attack caravans through their country disguised as leopards, and inexplicably they are fooling everyone but Tarzan (Johnny Weissmuller) that they really are leopards - inexplicably, because the men look really stupid in their leopard costumes.

But because Tarzan has grown suspicious, High Priestess Lea has sent her kid brother Kimba (Tommy Cook) over to Tarzan, Jane (Brenda Joyce) and Boy (Johnny Sheffield), to keep an eye on them. But Kimba is adamant to make his first kill, and has chosen Jane to be his victim ... not that he succeeds mind you.

Eventually, the Leopard Cult has taken four young female would-be teachers (Iris Flores, Lillian Molieri, Kay Solinas, Helen Gerald, none of them has any lines though) captive and Tarzan, investigating the girls' disappearance, is soon captured himself.

Meanwhile, Boy has found out the secret of Kimba, but befoe he can make any good use of the knowledge, he and Jane are also taken prisoners.

Back in the Leopard Cult's caves, Lea and Doc Lazar decide to sacrifice all their prisoners to the Leopard God, but for some reason, soon a fight between Lazar and Kimba, who thinks Lazar is assuming too much, breaks out, and when Tarzan is able to free himself (with a little help of his pet chimp Cheetah) and show his friends the path to freedom, Lazar and Kimba accuse each other of having set the prisoners free. And while they are still fighting, Tarzan single-handedly manages to make the Leopard Cult's hideout cave in. Only Lazar and Kimba survive, but they hate each other quite so much by that time that they kill each other immediately after having survived the cave-in.

And when the local commissioner (Dennis Hoey) looking for the young teachers finally arrives, the whole thing is already over ...

 

Of course, Tarzan and the Leopard Women, like all RKO-Tarzans, is no match for MGM's classics Tarzan the Ape Man and Tarzan and his Mate, but taken as a piece of jungle-camp, it's actually quite rewarding, featuring a far-fetched plot, evil cultists doing bizarre cult-dances and wearing silly outfits, and cult fave Acquanetta playing their leader ... against better judgement you might find yourself liking this film.

 

One thing though: Tarzan and Jane have by this film ultimately become the boring couple you might find in your neighbourhood: Tarzan spends quite some time making repairs in their home or finding excuses not to do them, while Jane, who was a spunky free spirit when Maureen O'Sullivan played her, is now reduced to the status of a boring housewife who virtually does nothing (least of all thinking) without the help of a man, and be it her teenage son Boy or the young kid they have just found in the jungle.

How times have changed since Tarzan the Ape Man and Tarzan and his Mate.
