Movie Info

When a plane crashes in the jungle, Tarzan and Jane find the sole survivor; an infant. After raising Boy for five years, inheritance-seeking relatives come for him after they find out he is alive and living in the jungle. An ill-bearing tribe captures the trio of jungle-ites when they attempt to adopt the child, but handy--and vocally gifted--Tarzan calls in Elephants for aid in the form of a stampede. Maureen O'Sullivan requested to end her Jane stint in this film, but was denied and the end to Tarzan Finds a Son was reshot so her character could remain in subsequent Tarzan films.

Audience Reviews for Tarzan Finds a Son!

More of the simple life, away from the choatic urban toil and struggle of modern civilization, and away to a secret escarpment hidden in darkest Africa, home to the king of the jungle. A plane crash provides the king and his mate a little rambunctious heir but Jane wonders if perhaps England is better for the child. The 4th of the series, still effective, still vibrant, even if Jane's whining gets aggravating. If only things could be as simple as life in the jungle! If only everybody could kill a rhino with just a Bowie knife!
