Review: ‘Tarzan and the Slave Girl’

Lex Barker, as Tarzan, takes to the jungle on the trail of some femme natives who are being held prisoners by a group of lost tribesmen [led by Hurd Hatfield]. With him on the trek are a doctor (Arthur Shields), searching for the source of a jungle disease; a comely half-breed nurse with a yen for men; a drunken jungle beachcomber (Robert Alda), and sundry native carriers. Enroute, the safari fights off natives disguised as bushes and armed with deadly blowguns.

Vanessa Brown makes her bow in the Jane role and fills the bill on all counts. Denise Darcel is the nurse, adding plenty of s.a. spice.
