This was the fifth MGM Tarzan film to star Johnny Weissmuller and Maureen O'Sullivan and the second appearance of Johnny Sheffield as Boy.

Original prints of the film were processed in sepiatone, a specialized treatment to give a warmer tone to black-and-white.

Exterior filming locations include Silver Springs and Wakulla Springs in Florida and the Iverson Ranch, Chatsworth, California.

Actor Tom Conway would later meet a different Tarzan when he appeared with Lex Barker in Tarzan and the She-Devil (1953).

The role of the native boy Trumbo who becomes a friend to Tarzan's son is played by Cordell Hickman, whose later film appearances include Arabian Nights (1942) and Buffalo Bill (1944).

Cordell Hickman passed in 1996 at the age of 63.

Appearing uncredited as the "native in boat" is actor Everett Brown whose earlier films included King Kong (1933), Tarzan the Fearless (1933), Tarzan and His Mate (1934) and Tarzan Escapes (1936).

Everett Brown passed in 1953 at the age of 51.

Costumed as a "bird creature", this was the third and final Tarzan film for sideshow performer Johnny Eck, who is best known for his role as the "Half-Boy" Tod Browning's Freaks (1932). He previously performed as a "bird" in 1932's Tarzan the Ape Man and 1936's Tarzan Escapes.

Johnny Eck passed in 1991 at the age of 79.
