Tarzan And Jane Movies _BEST_

Tarzan is swinging into theaters once again. The classic character was a huge draw at the movies during Hollywood's golden age, but he hasn't had a big budget, wide release since the 1999 Disney animated classic, Tarzan. Now, Tarzan finally gets another potential blockbuster live action treatment with The Legend of Tarzan, which puts a new spin on the character. This time around, Tarzan and his wife Jane have been living in London for a decade when they're lured back to the African jungle. A lot of interesting new details are added that aren't present in Disney's version, including Tarzan and Jane having a child together. But how many kids have Tarzan and Jane had over the course of their long history together?

It depends upon who's writing the character. Tarzan was created by Edgar Rice Burroughs, who published his first novel about the character in 1912. The third book in Burroughs' original series, 1914's The Beasts of Tarzan, introduces Jack Clayton, the son of Jane and Tarzan. Jack takes on the name Korak, gorilla for "killer," and spends part of his youth living in the jungle separated from his parents, becoming a similar type of wild man to his father. Korak is easily the most common depiction of Tarzan and Jane's son, and is a pretty well-known character in his own right. Korak has shown up in tons of Tarzan-related media like movies, books, and comics, but some of the best-known Tarzan films actually replaced the character with a different son.

The popular series of 12 Tarzan movies that starred Johnny Weissmuller as the King of the Jungle and introduced many of the concepts fans now recognize in the character, like the iconic yell, did not include Korak. Instead, Tarzan and Jane adopt a son and call him "Boy" in the series. Boy features in eight of the Weissmuller films, beginning in 1939's Tarzan Finds a Son! and concluding with 1947's Tarzan and the Huntress.

There are only a few movies that have done a great job in establishing a character by their first appearance alone and this is what makes this quote so great. All you needed to know about Terk became clear once she jumped on the scene.

Weissmuller portrayed the Lord of the Jungle in 12 films, beginning with Tarzan, the Ape Man in 1932. MGM's most memorable Tarzan movies featured those pairing Weissmuller and Maureen O'Sullivan as Jane. They appeared in six films together in the 1930s and early '40s. The most famous of these outings is probably 1934's Tarzan and His Mate, in which Tarzan and Jane do a nude underwater dance.

Mike Henry passed the torch onto another former professional football player, Ron Ely. He only starred in two movies, 1970's Tarzan's Deadly Silence and Tarzan's Jungle Rebellion, but he did headline the NBC television series for two years, giving up the role after a series of injuries.

Andy Warhol: Yes. But it just covers the cost of making movies. I don't pay any of the people who act in them or help conceive the ideas, but film and processing cost a lot, and the rent of the Factory and the props.

Cavalier: Film Culture magazine has said that your "Underground" movies are a "meditation on the objective world, in a sense... a cinema of happiness." Some of your films, however, are about rather bizarre aspects of the objective world. For example, Eat is forty-five silent minutes of a man eating a mushroom, Empire is eight solid hours of the world's tallest building. blow Job has been described as one half hour of 'a passionate matter handled with restraint and good taste.' One of your newest sound films, Vinyl, has a couple of scenes of what the Victorian english referred to as 'buggery,' a subject which, by any name, is still regarded rather gravely by polite society. In view of such controversial subjects, have you ever encountered any trouble showing your films?

Andy Warhol: About two years ago. I just suddenly came up with the thought that making movies would be something interesting to do, and I went out and bought a Bolex 16mm camera. I made my first movie in California, on a trip to Los Angeles. I went there with Taylor Meade [sic], an Underground movie star. We stayed in a different place every day. We took some shots in a men's room out at North Beach and we used one of the old Hollywood mansions for for some of the inside shots. The movie we were shooting was Tarzan and Jane Regained Sort of. Taylor Meade [sic] called it his most anti-Hollywood film. [Note: Tarzan and Jane was not Warhol's first film - see filmography. gc.]
