In , the United States Library of Congress deemed the film "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant" and selected it for preservation in the National Film Registry. Tarzan and Jane live in the jungle, along with their chimpanzee Cheeta. Harry Holt and his business partner Martin Arlington, leading a large party of locals, meet them on their way to take ivory from an elephant burial ground. Holt had visited the burial ground with Tarzan on an earlier trip, during which he had also met Jane. Holt had sought Tarzan out, as he was the only one who knew the way to the burial ground. On this trip, Holt tries to convince Jane to return with him to civilization by bringing her gifts such as clothing and modern gadgets. Jane tells him she would rather stay with Tarzan.
Director Jean Vigo's only full-length feature film and his last film before his death in at the age of 29 was a poetically-told, lyrical, sensual, visually-rich, sometimes playful drama, and a down-to-earth, simple story about a newly-married couple struggling with and adjusting to their wedded relationship. Against stubborn Jean's wishes, the couple temporarily separated and went their separate ways when the bored, capricious and melancholic Juliette went off to window shop and to see Parisian nightlife, while Jean remained on the barge - and then cast off without her, literally deserting her on shore. As they began to miss each other, there was an exquisite and erotic love scene filmed in a paralleling montage with intercutting and super-imposed images of the lonely husband and wife restlessly tossing and turning sleeplessly on separate beds on the barge, and in a seedy Parisian hotel.
As 'The Legend of Tarzan' releases this week, we look back at a Tarzan film that proved too hot to handle. The second film in the Tarzan series, it was directed by Cedric Gibbons and starred, like the first film and 10 others after it, former swimming champion Johnny Weissmuller. This garment might have incited a minor controversy had there not been another, larger issue for everyone to get riled up about.
