Overview

Two escaped convicts George Macready and Glenn Anders invade the jungle dominion of Tarzan Lex Barker to set up a gunrunning operation. One of the criminals has sworn to "get" Tarzan, who was responsible for his arrest, and to that end stirs up unrest between two African tribes. After narrowly escaping death at every turn, Tarzan quells the inter-tribal hostilities, rescues a voluptuous jungle queen Dorothy Dandridge, and saves his mate Jane Virginia Houston from the murderous machinations of the criminals. Tarzan's Peril plays more like a serial than a feature film, but certainly lives up to its title. African-American actress Dorothy Dandridge's brief appearance as the jungle queen involves a "bondage" sequence that has been cited by several film historians one of whom evidently had a crush on Ms. Dandridge as being somehow symbolic.
