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."

They’re time capsules of entertainment from an earlier era, and they should be preserved.
Tarzan's secret treasure is not the gold they find in the water.In "Tarzan escapes" we had already seen Jane meeting her English cousins and displaying no interest in the rich inheritance .The beginning of the movie displays a true garden of Eden ,where you can have what you want for nothing ,so why bother to make money or use gold?
