Film Review

I love the old Johnny Weissmuller/MGM "Tarzan" movies of the 1930s and 40s. I have them all six of them on laserdisc from the 1990s, but I have to wonder in what form they will arrive on DVD — if ever? Watching "Tarzan’s Secret Treasure" (1941) today I was amazed to hear for the first time, after many viewings, Barry Fitzgerald’s O’Doul character refer to a little black native boy as a "pickaninny."
