Inspired by The African Queen
22 April 2017 | by hackraytexSee all my reviews

This is a very amusing and interesting segment of Tarzan. It is very clear that it is a delightful adaptation of The African Queen with numerous references.

Julie Harris is a missionary character similar to Katherine Hepburn. Manuel Padilla, Jr. is similar to Humphrey Bogart in being a guide through the African environment. The boat they are on is called "The Jungle Queen" instead of "The African Queen".

I do not wish to take anything away from an magnificent movie as "The African Queen" is and certainly do not wish to diminish "The Perils Of Charity Jones". A delight to watch anytime. Good job everyone.
