Trivia

This movie was released in both silent and "sound" versions. The sound consisted of a crude musical score, sound effects and a few lip-synched lines on a record.

The record contains the very first Tarzan yell, invented by 'Merrill, Frank' .

"Tarzan the Terrible" was planned but the studio decided Merrill's voice wasn't right for talkies and the film was scrapped.
