screenshots / Tarzan, the Ape Man / 1981 Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer


Brawny Miles O'Keeffe is "unlike any other Tarzan you've ever seen" in this film which was mostly a showcase for the then popular Bo Derek. O'Keeffe was originally hired as a stuntman for the new Tarzan, and then a sudden change in casting awarded him the loincloth. Filmed on location in Sri Lanka and the Seychelles Islands, "A Man Called Horse" (Richard Harris) co-starred and former Tarzan Jock Mahoney served as stunt coordinator.
