TARZAN'S REVENGE
1938

While the "Tarzan" series was going full blast at MGM, several independent producers managed to secure the screen rights to Edgar Rice Burrough's Lord of the Jungle for their own low-budget adventure films. Taking into consideration the fact that MGM's Tarzan was Olympic swimming star Johnny Weissmuller, Sol Lesser managed to cast two Olympic athletes in 1938's Tarzan's Revenge: 1936 decathlon champion Glenn Morris as Tarzan and aquatic medal-winner Eleanor Holm as "Eleanor".

PLOT:
When Eleanor is kidnapped by lascivious jungle sultan Ben Alieu Bey (C. Henry Gordon), Tarzan comes swinging to the rescue. Glenn Morris cuts quite a figure in his Tarzan loincloth, while the curvaceous Eleanor Holm demonstrates just what it was that attracted so many celebrity suitors on both sides of the Atlantic.

Tarzan's Revenge with Glenn Morris, in his sole Tarzan appearance, is rarely seen today. His real fame goes back to the 1936 Berlin Olympics when he won a decathlon medal and swept Hitler's favorite director, Leni Riefenstahl off her feet. She even mentions the bizarre blouse-ripping incident with Morris in her memoirs.

Glenn Morris .... Tarzan
