Tarzan is one of the most powerful icons of western culture. Generations of readers and viewers have projected their fantasies on to the mythical hero who embodies a unique relationship between Man and Nature, and holds the promise of epic, romantic adventures.
This documentary, for the first time, explores the many facets of the myth and tells the story of Tarzan’s enduring success through film, television, comics strips and novels. A thoughtful and humorous look at the way the King of the Jungle has changed over close to a century.
