Tarzan’s Savage Fury

A series of unexciting jungle heroics are offered in Tarzan's Savage Fury. The long-lived film series introduces a sort of Tarzan Jr, in the person of young Joey (Tommy Carlton), a jungle boy taken in by Tarzan and Jane (Lex Barker, Dorothy Hart). Moppet tags along when the jungle lord and ride lead a party into dangerous Wazuri country on a diamond hunt.

Tarzan has been sold a bill of goods by Rokov (Charles Korvin) and Edwards (Patric Knowles), latter posing as Tarzan’s English cousin, that the diamonds are for England’s war industry. Trek through jungle and over desert and mountains is dragged out very slowly by Cy Endfield’s direction.

Carlton is introduced while being used as crocodile bait by some native hunters. Kid’s muscular physique fits in with the demands of the series. Technical credits are standard.
