Below average and ridiculously free rendition based on Edgar Edgar Rice Burroughs characters
This film is the Spanish version of the King of the Jungle and stars David Carpenter , Nadiuska , Paul Naschy ; it is an inferior Tarzan movie with emotion , adventures , tough battles between Tarzan and natives , underwater fights against Crocs , and marvelous but inappropriate outdoors . It deals with a nasty hunter , Stanley (Paul Naschy) who is attempting to transport weapons cargo throughout the African jungle , he is accompanied by the gorgeous Doris (Nadiuska) who is looking for his missing brother . Tarzan is threatened by the villain Stanley , but he doesn't take kindly the threat and executes against the evil-doer an extreme lesson . Meanwhile , a queen (Alibe Parsons) lives at a strange location , a valuable grotto , ¨The Golden cave¨ , Salomon's mines , a secret cave whose place is only known by this Queen of Leopard warriors . Later on , Tarzan saves Doris from Crocodriles and some cruel natives . At the ending Tazan finds the position of the ostentous cave and confronts the powerful queen .
In the film there are silly nasty enemies , extensive views of the Safari Parks and menageries with a lot of wildlife , and many other things . The movie is a bore and dubiously faithful to Edgar Rice Borroughs story , including some scenes at least bearable , yet laughable . It contains noisy action , sensational adventures , many angry natives , ominous white hunters , several fun underwater scenes as well as inappropriate outdoors . It is lousy picture , as the acting is campy and the dialog childish . I'd skip this mess and rent a vintage Tarzan film from the 1940s . Embarrassing as well as absurd and kiddie screenplay it's not enough to save this second rate or make it 3rd rate rip-off of the typical Tarzan adventure movies . There are some nice views of the local area , and attractive Nadiuska , but aside from that the film turns out to be a flop .
The film is lousily performed by David Carpenter . This apocryphal Tarzan dressed in leopard , including a ruddy , rocker lookalike style was born in Orotava , Tenerife , a good-looking boy to pursue an acting career , citing Johnny Weissmuller as a childhood influence , though his career had sparse glory . In Spain his character was referred to as "Tarzan" , but when they were released in English-language territories they directly avoided mentioning the Tarzan name to avoid copyright foes . David Carpenter died in Thailand (2000) , at 50 year old , under strange circumstances , putting an end to his failed acting career . This is a pretty bad Tarzan movie , though , subsequently , become a ¨Cult movie¨ for some Frikis aficionados to these kinds of weird products .
Other Spanish Tarzan movies and in similar style are the followings : ¨Tarzan in the the Golden grotto¨ and "Tarzan and the Brown Prince" directed by Manuel Caño , stars fan-favorite Steve Hawkes and two produced by Profilmes starred by Richard Yesteran : ¨Tarzan Y El Misterio De La Selva¨(1973) by Miguel Iglesias Bonn and ¨Tarzan Y El Tesoro De Kawana¨ by José Truchado . The motion picture was lousily directed by Jose Luis Merino , under pseudonym J.L. Merino Boves , though resulted to be average . He's a skill and successfully craftsman . Merino often uses same actors , such as Stelvio Rossi , Peter Lee Lawrence , George Hilton and Charles Quiney . He has written/directed numerous films of all kinds of genres such as Terror : Ivanna , The hanging woman ; Euro-spy : Colpo Sensazionale al Servicio Del Sifar ; Chorizo/Spaghetti Western : More Dollars for the MacGregors , Frontera Sur , Réquiem for the gringo , Gatling gun , Seven ride to death , ; Wartime : Last Panzer battle , Hell commandos , A Bullet for Rommel , When heroes die ; Musical : Europa Canta , Aquellos Tiempos Del Cuple , and his most successful films are the fresh and diverting adventures : Tarzan and King Salomon's mines , Robin Hood , Rebelion De Bucaneros , El Zorro knight of Justice , El Zorro De Monterrey , and Last adventure of Zorro
