Greystoke: the Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes

We recall being offered the chance, on a friend’s birthday way back, to go and see a film at the ABC in Glasgow. Would it be Bacon-and-Loggins fest Footloose, or this? We chose this and we have no idea why. In addition to yer actual Lambert we also have a memorable turn by Sir Rich Ralphardson playing a mental old duffer – just a wee cameo part, then – Alan ‘End Of The Pier’ Wells, Ian ‘bottom of a bloody well!’ Holms, David ‘close personal friend’ Suchet and Richard ‘Ffizz’ Griffiths.

    Still think of Sir Ralph’s final words in this: “Bumpity bumpity bumpity bump!” What a good thing (?) he had Give My Regards to Broad Street to end on, or those would have been the last words he ever spoke on screen.

    Surprised no one has mentioned the soft porn Tarzan revival with Bo Derek from 1981 that enraged the estate of Edgar Rice Burroughs and was a load of embarassing piffle. Luckily Greystoke revived the franchise’s fortunes and was a good film, although I’m still a big fan of the studio bound RKO films from the 1940s.
