"Come on, Tarzan!" is Heard Many a Time in "Come On, Tarzan"
12 January 2020 | by glennstenbSee all my reviews

If you like horse action and Ken Maynard you will be in third or fourth heaven with this movie that focuses on horse rustling! Tarzan gets a chance to be the star of the show in this film, and he doesn't disappoint. He runs like the wind, warns of problems, gets shot, single-"handedly" rustles other horses, gives nods of approval, and even helps in a river rescue. But most of the time he regally stands guard on top of a bluff reviewing the varied action below, ready to step in and save the day at just the right time. But Tarzan isn't the only horse in this film, of course. In fact, horses are seen all the time, often thrillingly running at full tilt, singly, and in groups with and without riders. Ken Maynard in 1932 was still quite stilted in his acting, but he tries so earnestly to emote that one just has to forgive him and go with the flow. Ken isn't the only one with stiff acting moments, but there is such spectacular outdoor scenery throughout the program that the movie's acting limitations become of less and less consequence. Many of the scenes are shot alongside bending rivers and other obviously outdoor settings with the windswept swaying of plants and dust kick-ups lending authenticity to the proceedings. Interiors are excellent, too. "Come on, Tarzan" has its limitations, yes, but nonetheless it can be a fun experience for B-Western fans.
