Everyone’s favorite loincloth-clad Man of the Apes, Tarzan (Herman Brix), heads to Central America for some true cliff-hanging adventures in this complete collection of 12 serialized episodes. Intent on rescuing an old friend, Tarzan travels to Guatemala and ends up fighting bad guys who are after a priceless idol, which also happens to contain top secret information. Ula Holt, Frank Baker and Ashton Dearholt also star.
It is difficult to overlook the racist depiction of Gautemalans, although the machine-gun fire massacre allows for a frightening sequence that, today, is difficult to recognize as a heroic escape plan. What is incredible about this work are the effective elements of exploitation: exotic locations, action sequences injected with such high energy and a strange and scary pulsing score of Mischa Bakaleinikoff!
