    Not a fan of these Tarzan films that came out in my youth. I know there are many fans of these movies on HTF so I'm happy for them. I was Johnny Weissmuller film buff all the way including his Jungle Jim films.

    This is one of the better 50's-60's Tarzans. It is colorful and features Sean Connery in an early (same year as DARBY O'GILL), villainous performance (!).

    The only Archive title I will pass on in November, then, is MAME.

  2. And conversely, I think this is the best Tarzan film, and will also be buying this. Hopefully, Warner Archive will release the other really good Tarzan film featuring Gordon Scott, Tarzan the Magnificent, on Blu as well.

    Best for me also.

  4. Sony Home Entertainment has put out a few of the Weissmuller Jungle Jim films. They all normally go for $20 each but sometimes go on sale down to $15. Titles available are MARK OF THE GORILLA, PYGMY ISLAND, JUNGLE MANHUNT, FURY OF THE CONGO plus one of the films where Johnny Weissmuller played himself (JUNGLE MOON MEN).

  5. nice, now if there is the possibility of the 5 other Scott's showing, i will be happy,

    I am happy to see this get a release, it does mean that run on series does have a chance for releases, ahem, Tarzan and Charlie Chan,

    but as happy as i am for this announcement, i hope that it isn't just a one off

    This is incredible. In the past 15 hours Warner announces The Thing from Another World — That was so good as to be unbelievable.
    But, now this, a film that I never thought Warner would go back and restore.

    Tarzan's Greatest Adventure is a movie that really lives up to the title, and much of it is actually filmed in Africa: So great to see real African locations. And, yes, Tarzan the Magificent is almost as good, so getting that would be great as well.

    I think Tarzan's Greatest Adventure (1959), Weissmuller's original & first all talking Tarzan the Ape Man (1932) & sequel Tarzan and His Mate (1934) are the 3 greatest films of the 100 years of Tarzan movies.

    I agree. With John Guillermin directing, it's not surprising that it was the best and toughest Tarzan film. Saw it on first release and the quality of the film was self-evident. Surprised and pleased that it's been given the Blu-ray treatment.

  8. I grew up reading the Tarzan books so it was a shock when the MGM and RKO films first aired on TV and I saw how Tarzan was characterized. That said, I think Tarzan and His Mate is the most entertaining of all Tarzan films, with 'Greatest Adventure close behind.

    The mighty Lord of the Apes (Gordon Scott) is on a deadly trail. He’s determined to find the diamond hunters (including Anthony Quayle and Sean Connery) who brought terror and death to a peaceful village. But as much as Tarzan is a tracker and avenger, he’s also a protector. An irresponsible gadfly from the so-called civilized world intrudes on his quest, and Tarzan knows he cannot leave her to fend for herself.

    Tarzan’s Greatest Adventure is widely applauded as one of the best and most grownup films in the entire film annals of the jungle lord’s exploits. It’s “a superior action yarn shot on location in Africa, more adult than most of its predecessors. Tarzan has a much expanded vocabulary” (Leonard Maltin’s Movie Guide).
