For this years holidays, the Reed family - Pop Roger (George Barbier), Mom Peggy (Hedda Hopper), daughter Eleanor (Eleanor Holm) & her fiancé Nevin (George Meeker) - undertake a safari to the African jungle involving some big game hunting. Unfortunately though, lovely Eleanor has caught the eye of Ben Ali Bey (C.Henry Gordon), the powerful ruler of some native tribe who lives in a palace deep in the deepest jungle, & he has bribed the safari's guide Olaf Punch (Joe Sawyer) to bring the girl to him ...

But fortunately, Eleanor has also caught the eye of Tarzan (Glenn Morris), who watches the gils every step from a secret hiding place, & when he first makes himself known to her, none of her companions would believe her about the mysterious jungle man.

However, when Tarzan abducts her, & the 2 of them fall in love with each other, the others - especially Nevin - soon become eager to hunt down & capture the jungle man - with little success though. But then Olaf Punch leads them into a trap set by Ben Ali Bey, & Eleanor is abducted.by his natives. Now only Tarzan can save her, boldly entering Ben Ali Bey's palace & stealing the girl from him, then dropping him & his natives into a canyon when destroying a bridge they are crossing in hot pursuit.

But is Tarzan thanked for saving Eleanor ?

No, her fiancé tries to shoot him when they next meet. Disappointed, Tarzan leaves into the jungle, & Eleanlor, when seeing the real nature of her fiancé, follows Tarzan & they lived happily ever after.

 

After Johnny Weissmuller, Buster Crabbe, & Herman Brix (= Bruce Bennett), Glenn Morris was already the fourth actor playing Tarzen in the 30's (or in talking pictures for that matter), & it is fair to say that he was the worst yet (not of all times, though, at least Dennis Miller & Miles O'Keeffe would be below him), as his acting talent is terribly limited in range.

The movie itself is quite a good-natured hoot, with the actors all seeming to go for a game of tennis rather than to the deepest African jungle, which is reflected in care-free dialogue as well as casual costumes & acting, with the inserted jungle footage rather contradicting the  goings-on than contributing to them in this respect.

Unintentional laughs guaranteed.
