Zan, King of the Jungle (1969)

Original title: Tarzán en la Gruta del Oro

Jungle adventure. Spain/Italy/Puerto Rico. Starring Steve Hawkes, Kitty Swan, Krista Nell, Jesús Puente, Fernando Sancho, Raf Baldassarre & Ugo Sasso. Directed by Manuel Caño.

VTC (Sweden). English dubbed. Letterboxed.

The first, and best of the string of cheap, unauthorized Tarzan films that was produced in Spain during the late 60s/early 70s (here Tarzan was called Zan in most countries due to legal matters). Great fun all the way - Steve Hawkes is the coolest Tarzan, Kitty Swan the best jungle girl, the music is great and everything moves a long at fast pace (Umberto Lenzi's script throws in everything from amazons too men in gorilla suits). Recommended. 4/5
