TARZAN AND THE TRAPPERS (Television Release USA 1966)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.4|5.0 Starsììì

Tarzan and the Trappers
—aged presentation of the Tarzan story—needs restoration. This black and white film is beginning to fade into a light white. The camerawork is poor, the set design sparse, and the audio less than satisfactory. It is what it is and may be useful if one has interest in viewing a 1966 low-budget film.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

No. The movie shows its age in presentation as it panders to an audience who has not traveled or been able to watch exotic animals even within the confines of a zoo. It serves more on the level of an academic watch than as entertainment.
