Weissmuller and O'Sullivan appear together in their third TARZAN picture, but this time Jane is wearing a dress (compliments of the Hays Code fashion emporium) and the loving couple are living in a tree house, complete with an elephant-driven elevator. O'Sullivan is tricked into separating

from Weissmuller by some dastardly hunters, leaving the ape-man with a sad look on his face. After the usual animal battles and elephant stampedes, the swinging pair are reunited. One shockingly evil scene includes a painful ritual performed by a native tribe, showing victims tied spread-eagled to

bent trees. The trees are then released, sending the poor souls flying into various sections of the jungle. Originally titled THE CAPTURE OF TARZAN, this picture was substantially reshot and re-edited, apparently being too frightening and daring for the pampered audiences. One of the film's three

writers, John Farrow, went on to marry O'Sullivan.
