Tarzan and the Great River

Mike Henry is the umpteenth thesp to portray the title character; his physique is better than his acting, but he’s doing well enough by the few demands of the role. In Rio de Janeiro, he’s called upon to break an ancient killer cult which has been revived in the jungle by a vicious native leader (Rafer Johnson).

Zoologists probably will be a bit startled to learn that African maned lions roam the Brazilian jungles, as well as hippos who splash in the Amazon. Robert Day’s direction is as good as the script [from a screen story by Bob Barbash and Lewis Reed] will permit.

Starring with Henry is Jan Murray, as a convincing river skipper in for too much out-of-place comedy. Manuel Padilla Jr plays his small Indian charge, who travels up and down the river with him. Diana Millay portrays a doctor who wants to help the natives, looking like she just stepped out of a beauty parlor.
