Year of release: 1970
Reviewed 4 July 2007.
 


Reviewed by: C. Demetrius Morgan

This review is dedicated to Andrew, who likes to hear others bad movie experiences.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.  ;)

The Characters:

  • Tarzun - Duane Prodd.  The loincloth clad hero of the piece.  Doesn't say much; has a bump in with a tree.
  • Jayne - Chris Robin. The white jungle goddess lusted after by natives (both men and women) and apes.
  • Meena - Deedee.  Ebony native who sooths Tarzun's wounded *ahem* and runs around naked a lot.
  • The Ape - Al Martin.  Not the worst gorilla suit ever filmed but definitely the strangest, uhm, anatomy.


The Plot:

Imagine if you dare an adult version of George of the Jungle.  Now recast the entire movie with a late 60s era cast.  Reduce the budget to what a troupe of impoverished student performers might have access to and lower the humor standards to bargain basement sight gags and sex jokes and you're probably looking at a movie with better production values than Tarzun in the Valley of Lust!  This is so bad it's hilarious.

Jayne looks like a hairdresser, Tarzun could easily pass for a surfer or beach bum, and the natives.  Well the natives were just a half dozen black folk.  If you think that sounds politically incorrect then wait until you hear about the movie.  This is, in short, a softcore porno.  There's simulated sex, both between man and beast, or rather a man dressed as a beast, specifically an ape, and the two actresses.

This is a shamelessly crude and rude production, yet it's probably much more fun to watch than contemporary T&A flicks like Playmates of the Apes or Kinky Kong.  As for the plot?  There wasn't much of one.  Essentially the story revolves around the Gorilla chasing the girls, Tarzun chasing the gorilla away from the girls, and everyone getting naked.  That's it.  For 48 minutes!


Things I Learned From This Movie:

  • You can sharpen a cheap pocketknife on large rocks.
  • Bananas have great soothing medicinal properties when applied internally.
  • If you smash your gonads into a tree oral stimulation from an ebony shamaness will heal them.
  • Adult features of the late 60s early 70s were strange beyond words.


Stuff To Watch For:

18 seconds - First gratuitous ebony breast shot in title still.
30 seconds - First gratuitous ivory breast shot in title still.
37 seconds - Sill of Ebony and Ivory together in full frontal harmony!
45 seconds - And Al Martin as the Ape (attacking Ebony).

3 min 50 sec - "Tarzun kill!"
4 min - Tarzun stabs Gorilla in gonads.
4 min 17 sec - "Jane.  Jane alright?" "I'm a little sore."  OUCH!

I didn't find this on the IMDB the first time I looked.  Left it here, thinking you would suddenly say "Just kidding!" and still no joy, so I looked for the title again.  This time it popped right up.  I should have guessed that it was put out on DVD by Something Weird. 

Have to agree that many of the softcore porn efforts of today do not interest me, but I can get some enjoyment from older things like this.  There are exceptions, like "The Toy Box," but a bizarre 70's Tarzan softcore film sounds darn funny.

Yeah, hard to believe without seeing proof, but screencaps I can post without breaking someone's TOS are few and far between in this feature.

Oh, it gets worse.   This comes as part of a double feature with Tarz & Jane, Cheeta & Boy.  But that one, that one is very rude.

It's hilarious.

To much male frontal nudity for me if I remember right I have this but haven't seen it an a long time.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
