This 1957 Tarzan film is the first Tarzan film that is in color since the series of Tarzan films began in 1932 with sound. It is the second film in which the body builder Gordon Scott plays Tarzan. The producers of the film take many opportunities to show Scott's developed body and muscles. They even have the women in the film admiring him.
An airplane crashes with two women and three men in the area where Tarzan lives. It is about to topple over a cliff and Tarzan saves all five people. The five also meet a white hunter who, unbeknownst to them, promised the natives of a cruel tribe that he would give them four of the survivors so that they can sacrifice them to their god. He wants to retain one of the women, who is married to one of the men, for himself. He also promises to deliver Tarzan in place of the woman. Tarzan suspects this hunter from the first time that they meet. Both the hunter and Tarzan say they will to take the survivors out of the jungle to civilization.
Viewers will enjoy watching to find out if the hunter is able to keep his promise to the natives in whole or in part, what Tarzan does, and who survives this adventure.
