"Tarzan and the Leopard Woman" is my favorite from the series. And of course Brenda Joyce played Jane in it.

Not quite Maureen O'Sullivan as Jane but an attractive Jane none the less.

The first time I saw a Tarzan movie with her I felt cheated. Unfair of me, of course, but I was a kid and thought Maureen O'Sullivan was THE Jane forever. I wonder if she suffered from the comparison all her life.

It was somewhat jarring at first, but Maureen met future hubby John Farrow who directed the early Weismuller Tarzans and they gave the world and Woody Allen, Mia. LOL

And Tarzan and the Leopard Woman was a pretty good entry in the series. But I loved all the Weismuller movies. Really need to get the second volume of the Tarzan set.
