This Turner edition contains the first four Tarzan films of Johnny Weissmuller. These were MGM films from 1932, 1934, 1936, and 1939.

All films run the full length indicated on the IMDb listing. This means that Tarzan and His Mate includes the scene, often censored, with Tarzan and Jane swimming underwater, with Jane completely unclothed. (Well, actually, it is a body double, not Maureen O'Sullivan, doing the swimming for "Jane" -- and in all likelihood she is not actually nude but wearing a translucent body stocking, but still, it is only because the film was pre-Code-enforcement that MGM could get away with even that.)

There is an error, however, on the back of the keepcase: the running time of the third film, Tarzan Escapes, is listed as 95 minutes, when in fact it runs for only a little over 89 minutes. But 89 minutes was, if the IMDb is correct, the original running time, and the 95-minute claim is therefore wrong. This error appears to have been carried over from the VHS of Tarzan Escapes, which also claims to be 95 minutes on the sleeve but is only 89 minutes when actually played.

The films are grouped in twos on two DVDs, the first and third on one DVD, and the second and fourth on the other.

The chapter menus are detailed and good, and there are subtitles in a few languages, but there are no special features of any kind.

The quality of the prints is inconsistent. The oldest two show definite signs of age, especially the first, Tarzan the Ape Man. I have never seen a truly good print of the film. I imagine the crucial original elements are long since lost or corrupted. On the other hand, the fourth film in the collection, Tarzan Finds a Son, is almost pristine in quality.

Great memories of watching this with my dad on TV. The films have captured the vast numbers of animals that used to exist in Africa while at the same time providing a hilarious glimpse of humanity at its best and worst. Warning: These films contain antiquated racial stereotypes.

Good economical way to get the first 4 Tarzans. Would have been nice if trailers had been included but this is fine considering the price.

Excellent quality for movies from the 30's and 40's. Good family viewing and some interesting story lines.
