    I'd really love to see a box set of all the Johnny Weissmuller "Tarzan" films. I had a chance years ago to buy the LD box set & I did not buy it. I've regretted that decision.

    Currently the only VHS tapes I own are Star Wars, North and South mini series, 14 Looney Tunes tapes, Captain Blood and 6 Tarzan movies. I wish I could eventually replace them all with DVD's one day.

    Yes, getting the Tarzan films starring Johnny Weissmuller and Maureen O'Sullivan would be cool.

    Well since I don't have any faith that WB will ever release these films uncut if they are ever released at all, I went ahead & won the Box Set I mentioned above on eBay just recently. I'll just have to content myself with watching these films on LD, unless WB surprises the hell out of me!

    For sentimental, reliving-my-childhood reasons I'd like to see these films-that-time-forgot on DVD too. But I believe Jeff_HR may be correct.

    While I agree that so-called PC has gone "bonkers" of late, it hasn't been all that long ago (1991) that MGM/UA issued the uncensored version of Tarzan and his Mate on laserdisc. I guess Warners now own these Tarzan titles. Hopefully they will be released soon onto dvd.

    I have that uncensored version of Tarzan and his Mate on laserdisc. I'm hoping but I'm not holding my breath.

    WHV is releasing The Jazz Singer to DVD soon, so I doubt they have a problem with politically incorrect stuff.


    I'd like to see the early Tarzan films, especially the first in the series. However, I want to see them only with the kind of quality control given to their other 1930s B&W classics (like The Thin Man and 42nd Street).

    Well my Laserdisc Box Set of the Tarzan movies arrived a few minutes ago. The set includes:
    1. Tarzan Escapes
    2. Tarzan's Secret Treasure
    3. Tarzan Finds A Son
    4. Tarzan's New York Adventure
    So these 4 films join the 1st two Tarzan films which I also have on LD. Pretty Please Warners, I'm waiting for the DVDs!
