Out in the jungle, there's an evil tribe of (white) natives, the Lionians, and they have made it a habit to snatch young women and enslave them, even from right under Tarzan's (Lex Barker) nose. When they try to snatch Jane (Vanessa Brown) though, Tarzan proves that he still knows how to defend his woman. However, the one Lionian Tarzan managed to capture dies from a mysterious jungle fever, so Jane urges Tarzan to fetch the Doctor (Arthur Shields), who soon arrives with Lola (Denise Darcel), his hot-tempered French nurse - who almost immediately falls for Tarzan, even though her fiancé Neil (Robert Alda) has come along for the ride.

Tarzan, the Doc and Neil decide to head for Lionian village to fight the jungle fever, even if the Lionians are assholes and have allied themselves with the Nagasis - a tribe of both black and white tribesmen who prefer to dress up as bushes - who do everything in their power to stop Tarzan and company ... but the only two things they actually succeed in is to wound Neil and make it impossible for him to accompany the others and to make the Doctor lose his anti-jungle fever serum.

Meanwhile, back at Tarzan's treehouse, Jane and Lola have a catfight over Tarzan before they are kidnapped by the Lionians. Once in Lionian village (a weird mix of Egyptian and Aztec architecture) they try to escape but only manage to be walled in inside the King's tomb.

When Tarzan and company arrive in Lionian village, they learn that the Prince's (Hurd Hatfield) son is suffering from the jungle fever, and the Doc immediately tries to cure him ... only to notice he has lost his serum. Tarzan in the meantime clashes with Sengo (Anthony Caruso), the benign Prince's evil advisor (and the actual force behind all the kidnappings), somehow learns that Jane and Lola are walled in inside the tomb ... and hides in a sarcophagus - only to be walled in himself, inside the room next to Jane's.

In the meantime though, Neil has gotten better, has found the serum, and has made the way to Lionian village on his own, just in time for the Doctor to save the Prince's son.

After the Prince's son has been healed, the air has suddenly grown thin for Sengo, who was already about to sacrifice the Lionian high priest (Robert Warwick), and when Tarzan calls for his elephant to break him free and helpm him fight Sengo and his men, Sengo is sure to get his just desserts in the lion pit (or is it the lions who get their dessert ?). In the end, the Prince makes peace with Tarzan and company and (of course) sets all the slave girls free.

 

Totally pointless but not totally uncharming jungle adventure: Made on a moderate budget, the costumes and (cardboard) sets are high camp, the jungle by and large lacks black natives and jungle animals, and the story is, quite simply put, silly, but all that adds up to a somewhat entertaining piece of cheesy adventure cinema, pointless for sure, but weirdly enjoyable all the same (if you are at all into jungle kitsch that is).
