It wasn't so much the popularity of author Edgar Rice Burroughs' timeless jungle mainstay that drew audiences into theaters for this 1981 retelling of the Tarzan legend, but rather it was the presence of screen beauty Bo Derek. Now audiences can once again watch the woman once dubbed a perfect "10" frolic in the jungle, thanks to Warner Bros.' release of Tarzan, the Ape Man. The feature is presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen with accompanying audio rendered in closed-captioned English Dolby Digital 5.1. Optional English, Spanish, and French subtitles are also available. Extra features on this release are limited to a theatrical trailer.

    Synopsis


    Tarzan, the Ape Man
    John Derek directed this 1981 vanity production of the Tarzan tale as a bon-bon for his wife Bo Derek. The Bo Derek version answers any questions viewers may have had concerning Tarzan and Jane's sex life. The film begins as Jane (Bo Derek)'s father Parker (Richard Harris) heads to the African interior on the pretext of searching for hidden jungle secrets. He is actually looking for Tarzan (Miles O'Keeffe), whom he plans to kidnap and bring back to England dead or alive. Jane accompanies her manic father, along with his unassuming assistant Holt (John Phillip Law). Realizing that Parker is on his trail, Tarzan kidnaps Jane and it is love at first sight. Parker forges on, trying to capture Tarzan and save his daughter. But Tarzan finally saves the day when Jane is kidnapped by a band of African mud worshippers, who are preparing her to be sacrificed to the gods. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

      Great cast -Beautiful pictures of Bo. Husband and Wife effort.They had fun -threw in psychedelic colors ,accordion dissolves Frazetta title cards and 60's Batman like dissolves. Wanted greater exposition of Tarzan.He had no Dialogue! Photography was very good but climatic moments were thrown away with mood or secondary shots . Fun diversion from Tarzan tradition but R rated and not for children . A great one for Bo lovers .
