Tarzan and the She-Devil Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

The title characters of Tarzan and the She-Devil are played by Lex Barker and Monique Van Vooren. He, of course, is the loin-clothed Lord of the Jungle; she is the beautiful-but-deadly Lyra, head of a gang of ivory thieves. To expedite her crooked operation, Lyra has managed to enslave an East African tribe to do her bidding. Tarzan intervenes, only to be captured, tied up (several times) and imprisoned for his troubles. Finally able to free himself, Tarzan rescues the tribe -- and, incidentally, his mate Jane (Joyce McKenzie) -- by summoning forth his elephant friends. Raymond Burr co-stars as Lyra's slovenly, unshaven chief henchman, who ends up trampled to death by the rampaging pachyderms. Many of the jungle scenes in Tarzan and the She-Devil were lifted from the 1934 Frank Buck documentary Frank Buck. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
