Many people on this board know way more about the status of dvd releases then I do and I REALLY want to see all the sequels from Tarzan Triumphs to Tarzan and the Jungle Boy. Many of these sequels haven't been on television where I live for years, if ever. Does anyone agree that all the Tarzan sequels deserve to be on dvd, and does anyone know what the chances of that happening are?

Michael, the sequels you mention all ran as part of an excellent Tarzan marathon on the old AMC channel in the late 1990s.

I don't know about the chances, but I would hope that the success of this first set would lead to at least the remaining 6 Weismuller films being released in a second wave. I've read speculation (and it is only speculation) on another forum that Tarzan - wave 2 would come in 2006 after Warner finishes putting out their high profile collections over the next 18 months (Hitchcock, Val Lewton, etc.)

Hopefully the next Warner chat will provide the HTF membership to ask these types of questions.

The AMC Channel is unavailable in the city I live in. From What I can tell, the next Warner chat won't be for another 8 months. I hope I won't have to wait that long to find out if I'll ever see these films. Does anyone know when in particular the next Warner chat is for certain?

They haven't been on TV in my town since October, They've never been on VHS, no one was willing to tape them for me, and I missed March's online chat with Warner. If anyone has nothing to say during the next chat with Warner Home Video, could they please ask about Johnny Weissmuller RKO Tarzan films, if not about ALL the Tarzan films Warner owns that have never been on video? I don't think there's any film announced for theatrical release that I want to see as badly as these Tarzan sequels.

Very sad news and a Cinema icon that will live on!

Latter-day reports about the "real" Cheetah have always been met with a certain degree of skepticism, and this one is no different. This linked New York Times article may require registration to read, but in essence it quotes experts about the plausibility of such chimpanzee longevity claims, plus the difficulty of identifying particular individuals. New York Times article.

Love the quote from the archivist who said it was nearly impossible to identify a chimp as Cheetah from looking at old movie stills. "All chimps look basically like George Burns to me."
