Description by OLDIES.com:
When authorities ask Tarzan what he'll need to pursue a crime kingpin and his commandos through the wilds of Mexico, the Ape-Man requests only a good knife, a sturdy rope and some soft leather to fashion into a loincloth. "Casual but practical," he explains to the astonished officials. It's a new day for fans and for the jungle lord when ex-NFL linebacker Mike Henry grabs the vine for the first of his three portrayals of a Tarzan who has one foot in the power-suited, briefcase-toting urban world and another in the untamed wilds. This new action hero will need all his skills -- from relying on animal instincts to commandeering a tank -- in this adventure that ends with an explosive showdown in an uncharted city filled with gold.
In this jungle adventure, Tarzan is first seen wearing a business suit instead of a loincloth, but when he learns that a young boy who supposedly knows the location of a fabulous jungle treasure has been kidnapped by an evil explorer, he sheds his city clothes and hits the trees. Once in the jungle, he warns the chief who guards the gold mines that the explorer is planning to attack. The villain gets his comeuppance after he is smothered in gold dust.
