Tarzan and his Mate CL Recommends

When: Sat., Feb. 1, 2 p.m. 2014
Price: Free admission
The Main Library film series It Happened One Year: Classic Movies of 1934 continues with a screening of Tarzan and His Mate. The first sequel to 1932’s Tarzan the Ape Man isn’t just the best Tarzan flick in the Johnny Weissmuller series — it’s the best Tarzan movie ever made. Because it was produced in the pre-Code era, the levels of violence and sexuality are startling in their explicitness. Captured hunters are killed in grisly ways, while natives are ground into dust by rampaging elephants. As for the carnal aspect, there’s never any doubt when Tarzan and Jane swing off for the sole purpose of making whoopee, and Weissmuller and Maureen O’Sullivan remain an incredibly sexy couple.
