Tarzan's Savage Fury is a 1952 film starring Lex Barker as Tarzan, Dorothy Hart as Jane, and Patric Knowles. The movie was directed by Cy Endfield. While most Tarzan films of the 1930s, '40s and '50s presented Tarzan as a very different character from the one in Edgar Rice Burroughs' novels, this movie does make some allusions to the novels. It was shot in Chatsworth, California's Iverson Ranch. The film was the first to be directed by Cyril "Cy" Endfield in Britain, after becaming one of the Hollywood exiles during the blacklisting of left-wing film-makers.[2] The film was co-written by Cyril Hume, who'd contributed substantially to the "Tarzan" series back in its bigger budget MGM days.[3]

Tarzan agrees, against his better judgement, to guide British government agents Edwards and Rokov into the land of the Wazuri Tribe, to harvest uncut diamonds for national-defense purposes. But it transpires the agents are secretly criminals who intend to use the gems for their own sinister purposes. [3]


Critical reception

TV Guide said the film was "uninteresting and slowly paced" ; [4] but The Radio Times said "plenty of action helps the story along." [2]
