screenshots / Tarzan and the Lost Safari / 1957 Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer

After the crash of their plane, a group of five high-society passengers rely on the loinclothed jungle hero to lead them to safety. This was Gordon Scott's second Tarzan film after his debut in Tarzan's Hidden Jungle, and MGM's first since 1942's Tarzan's New York Adventure. It was also the first Tarzan movie filmed and released in color with some background location filming in Africa near Murchison Falls in Uganda and also in the Belgian Congo. During the production, the Masai tribe warrior gave Gordon Scott a nickname: Mtu Ule Na Panda Miti Mineju (Warrior Who Climbs Tall Trees). Gordon Scott did suffer a leg injury from working with a lion during production.
