Description
This TCM Greatest Classic Films Set includes these four great films:

Tarzan The Ape Man
The first teaming of Johnny Weissmuller as Edgar Rice Burroughs' Jungle Lord and Maureen O'Sullivan as Jane sets a high adventure standard and includes an exciting sequence of elephants rescuing Tarzan and Jane from pygmy captors.

Tarzan Escapes
A vile bwana has Tarzan caged and ready to ship to England for display as a sideshow freak. Can steel bars hold the ape man? Catch fascinating glimpses of Tarzan and Jane's jungle domesticity, including their dazzling treehouse.

Tarzan And His Mate
This second Weissmuller/O'Sullivan film includes footage edited shortly after the movie's original release, including a playful skinny-dip sequence. Tarzan also subdues a rhinoceros, wrestles a crocodile and rescues Jane as she's besieged by lions and warriors near a sacred elephant burial ground.

Tarzan Finds A Son!
There's a new cry in the jungle - the cry of an infant. A baby that survived a plane crash is adopted by Tarzan and Jane. John Sheffield debuts as Boy and outside intruders trigger a family rift igniting a crisis of kidnap, rescue and reunion.

    Comments about this product:

    I am now using my Kindle to read all the Tarzan novels. I grew up watching Weismuller's Tarzan and loved finding these four classics. Note that the crocodile fight scenes were constructed by the same man brought out of retirement to build the shark for JAWS. It was great to see his early work.

            I have always liked the Tarzan films while growing up. While watching I was amazed to see sections I never saw on TV. That is what makes these DVD's great you get the uncut version of the film. I will buy Tarzan Part 2.

              Comments about this product:

              The classic "Tarzan" movies are cheesy, but then again, that's sort of the point, maybe. They're quite old, so it makes sense that the production values are a bit "weak." They're entertaining and amusing. Some of the acting is pretty comical or downright awful, but that adds to the "cheesy factor." Entertaining stuff overall, and when viewed in the context of their era, pretty original and innovative, in many ways.

                  I loved watching these remastered Tarzan movies. The visual clarity brought out images I never imagined! The sound was excellent - I could understand most all of the dialog. You can activate the subtitles, too, so I can watch the movies while my wife is reading. I am thrilled to own these movies and will watch them over and over again. The only drawback is that watching the movies back to back you realize how much of the footage was reused. Tarzan kills the same lion, crocodile, and wildebeest over and over again!

                    Comments about this product:

                    Tarzan Vol 1 is a superb selected collection of Weissmuller MGM Tarzans. They are four of the five top-notch best of the Weissnmuller Tarzans in my estimation. (Vol. 2 is entertaining, but all the movies in it are in a more minor vein.) If TCM put out five-pack collections, I would have included the fifth best, "Tarzan Triumphs," produced by RKO when MGM dropped the series. Released in 1943 during WWII, it's Taran and Cheetah versus the Nazis all the way. That noted, Vol. 1 is an unusual addition to the Greatest Classic Films collection. Higly recommended.
