This was Gordon Scott's second Tarzan film after his debut in Tarzan's Hidden Jungle (1955), and MGM's first since 1942's Tarzan's New York Adventure.

This was the first Tarzan movie filmed and released in color with some exterior background location filming done in Africa near Murchison Falls, Uganda and also in the Belgian Congo.

During the production, the Masai tribe warriors gave Gordon Scott a nickname: Mtu Ule Na Panda Miti Mineju (warrior who climbs tall trees).

The role of hunter Tusker Hawkins is played by Robert Beatty, who later would appear on screen as the U.S. President in Superman IV: The Quest for Peace (1987).

Gordon Scott suffered a leg injury from working with a lion during production.
