TARZAN TRIUMPHS (1943)

Olympic  Medalist Johnny Weissmuller, the best of the Tarzan actors, is asked  to protect  a hidden city in the jungle  from interference by evil Nazis. He wants no part of the conflict until the bad guys kidnap Boy. Then he goes on the warpath. A good all-around Tarzan adventure.  Maureen O’Sullivan who played Tarzan’s mate, Jane, was not available due to studio contract issues, so she’s conveniently away visiting relatives in England.  But pulchritude is provided by Zandra (Frances Gifford), princess of the hidden city of Palandria.  Comic relief by Cheetah, Johnny Sheffield as Boy, directed by  Wilhelm Theile.

MUTINY (1952)

Early in the War of 1812, Mark Stevens is an American sea captain, commissioned to run the British blockade and fetch an unofficial war loan in gold bars from France. His first mate, Patric Knowles, is a dishonored  former British Navy captain. The gun crew, headed by Gene Evans with a hook hand and rowdy Rhys Williams, plot a  mutiny to seize the gold. The plot thickens when a femme most fatale, the very young and lovely Angela Lansbury, comes on board. She’s after the gold, too, and doesn’t care who she betrays or kills in order to get it.  The climax involves a primitive wooden submersible, a very unreliable kind of early submarine. Edward Dmytryk directs this salty and exciting tale.
