Saturday Matinee: Tarzan’s Revenge

Tarzan's_Revenge_(movie_poster)Every Saturday I find a movie or clip that I think will appeal to the fans of this blog. Since most of you enjoy action/adventure, I tend to focus on something that falls into that category. This week we’re looking at Tarzan’s Revenge, which was released back in 1938. Starring Glenn Morris as Tarzan, this movie also includes Eleanor Holm, who was a popular swimming star of the era. Producer Sol Lesser refused to call the lead female character Jane, feeling that Eleanor Holm was so famous for her swimming exploits that audiences would not accept her portraying anyone other than someone named Eleanor.
