User review:

Breaking into the second volume of WB’s Weismuller Tarzan movies, all of which were made at RKO, and which previously had been produced at MGM. Maureen O’Sullivan finally got her way and was able to leave the series when it left MGM, while Weismuller and Johnny Sheffield, who plays Boy, not to mention Cheetah, stayed on. Tarzan Triumphs isn’t a great film (I don’t have high expectations for any of the remainder of this series, honestly), but it is historically interesting, and amusing in the way all Tarzan movies are. In the thick of WWII, Nazis invade Tarzan’s jungle looking to enslave the lost city of Palandra. The princess of Palandra, Zandra (Frances Gifford), begs Tarzan for help. Tarzan refuses, claiming that the Nazis have done nothing to him. But when they actually do do harm to him, by kidnapping Boy, he vows revenge. Strange this one wasn’t made in 1941 instead of 1943. Or perhaps by ’43 people were already getting tired of war and this is “stay the course” propaganda. Don’t know, but it is fascinating as propaganda. It gets very violent, more violent than the other Tarzan movies as far as I can remember. Well, some black people get wasted in nasty ways in the early Tarzan movies, of course. But Tarzan mercilessly slaughters the Nazis. Cheetah pushes one off a cliff, and then pushes a boulder over after him! Even Boy gets to shoot a guy! And the final living Nazi suffers one of the most entertainingly horrible, Roman-style deaths ever. The film ends on a joke worth of Looney Tunes.

    Very nice. Anything with boy in it is a joy. He became Bomba of the Jungle. I guess once you wear a loin cloth, it’s, well……, difficult not to continue doing it. Your efforts are greatly appreciated.
