Picture is a par entry in the series. Early section of the yarn displays the usual animal stuff, with comedy antics of the pet simian, Cheta, providing elemental laughs.

The secret treasure turns out to be gold, which is plentiful among the rocks of the high escarpment on which the Tarzan group lives. After Tarzan saves a band of explorers and scientists from the nearby savage tribe, greedy members of the band figure to move in on the golden hill.

Picture swings into straight meller for the second half, with several sequences devoted to miraculous escapes by Tarzan from death. Weissmuller adequately handles the Tarzan role in his usual style, with Maureen O’Sullivan as his jungle mate and Johnny Sheffield their offspring. O’Sullivan carries quite an English accent into the jungle, which is apparent throughout. Direction by Richard Thorpe injects a good pace to the script.
