Just in from WB: ----------------- FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Johnny Weissmuller as The King of the Jungle THE TARZAN COLLECTION VOLUME 2 Tarzan Triumphs ~ Tarzan's Desert Mystery Tarzan and the Amazons ~ Tarzan and the Leopard Woman Tarzan and the Huntress ~ Tarzan and the Mermaids All New to DVD and Available Exclusively as a Collection October 31 Burbank, Calif. July 31, 2006 - Johnny Weissmuller swings back into action with Warner Home Video's The Tarzan Collection Volume 2 debuting on October 31. Following the huge success of WHV's first Weissmuller Tarzan set in 2004, this new DVD collection includes the home video debut of Weissmuller's last six Tarzan films, presented on three double-feature discs. Originally made at RKO, these films feature actress Brenda Joyce, assuming the role of Tarzan's beloved Jane. Although other actors would later play the role, these films exemplify why Weissmuller, the five-time Olympic champion, was the definitive Tarzan, and the one to pave the way for future interpretations of Edgar Rice Burroughs' jungle hero. During his acting career, Weissmuller starred in 12 Tarzan features for both MGM and RKO. This collection features Tarzan Triumphs/Tarzan's Desert Mystery, Tarzan and the Amazons/Tarzan and the Leopard Woman and Tarzan and the Huntress/Tarzan and the Mermaids. These six films which were never available on videocassette, are all new to DVD, and will sell as a collection only, for $39.92 SRP. Tarzan Triumphs (1943)/Tarzan's Desert Mystery (1943) World War II? That's the way of civilized people, not Tarzan. He refuses to be involved until the Nazis make the mistake of striking at the Ape-Man's family. Johnny Weissmuller returns as the jungle hero and Johnny Sheffield again plays Boy in Tarzan Triumphs. Tarzan's help with the war effort continues in Tarzan's Desert Mystery, as Tarzan crosses the Sahara to find medicinal plants needed by the Allies. Tarzan and the Amazons (1945)/Tarzan and the Leopard Woman (1946) Jane, absent from the series' two prior films, returns in these adventures starring Johnny Weissmuller and Johnny Sheffield with Brenda Joyce as Jane. When the jungle lord refuses to lead anthropologists to a mysterious female tribe, Boy does, setting in motion the plot twists and turns of Tarzan and the Amazons. Are brutal maulings the results of leopard attacks? The Ape-Man doesn't think so, and his instincts prove right as he faces murderous leopard men and their exotic priestess in Tarzan and the Leopard Woman. But its Cheetah to the rescue after the sect captures Tarzan, Boy and Jane and readies them for sacrifice. Tarzan and the Huntress (1947)/Tarzan and the Mermaids (1948) Expeditioners aim to harvest animals for profit, capturing them for zoos without regard for the balance of jungle life. There's one person the hunters didn't count on: Tarzan. He'll protect the habitat - and call in an army of elephants to assist when the going gets tough in Tarzan and the Huntress. The film features the last of Johnny Sheffield's eight appearances as Boy. In Tarzan and the Mermaids, Weissmuller bids his twelfth and final farewell to the role of the Ape-Man, but not before rescuing a lovely maiden from a forced marriage, tangling with a giant octopus and restoring harmony to a community of pure-hearted pearl divers.
