Overview

Ken Maynard's magnificent horse Tarzan took center-stage in this, perhaps the star's most flamboyant entry in the otherwise super low-budget KBS series. A wild stallion, Tarzan releases a group of horses corralled for slaughter by nasty Steve Frazer (Niles Welch), who is selling horseflesh to pet food manufacturers. When Frazer demands that the sheriff (Jack Rockwell) intervene, foreman Ken Benson (Maynard) convinces rancher Patricia Riley (Merna Kennedy) to help him prove Tarzan innocent. Dubious at first, Patricia finally comes around and together they get the goods on Frazer, who is eventually killed by a vengeful Tarzan.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
By far the best Ken Maynard effort from low-budget producer Sam Bischoff, Come on Tarzan is almost wall-to-wall action, well directed by the veteran Alvin J. Neitz, who also wrote the screenplay. In addition to Tarzan's scene-stealing antics, Maynard was also awarded a better-than-average leading lady in former Charles Chaplin protégée Merna Kennedy. In the end, alas, Come On Tarzan proved quite a debacle for the star, who was slapped with a copyright infringement suit by former neighbor Edgar Rice Burroughs, the creator of Tarzan's jungle namesake. Maynard, however, testified that it was Rice-Burroughs himself who had suggested to name the horse Tarzan and the case was dismissed.
