IMDb

Synopsis

Tarzan's son, Jack (Gordon Griffith), having been kidnapped and taken to Africa by Tarzan's old enemy, Paulovich, escapes captivity and retreats into the jungle with 'Ajax', an ape whose real name is Akut and who was a boyhood friend of Jack's father. Jack is given the Ape name 'Korak', which means 'Killer' in Ape language. Korak rescues Meriem, a young French girl, from Arab slave traders, and together they grow up in the jungle. But will 'Korak' and Meriem ever be reunited with their parents?...

Notes

  • Based on the 1915 novel "The Son of Tarzan", by Edgar Rice Burroughs.
  • Shown as a 15-chapter film serial.
  • The serial was the first to present a recap of previous chapters pictorially rather than through a written synopsis. Aware that the audience might not be familiar with the background of the story presented in this serial, director Harry Revier constructed a pictorial prologue that was played at the start of the first chapter. The idea was then extended in subsequent chapters to include a review of the story so far. The pictorial review of earlier chapters henceforth became a common feature of movie serials.
