Description by OLDIES.com:
The infant Tarzan is orphaned as the savage African jungle claims the lives of his parents, Lord and Lady Greystoke. Adopted by the great ape Kala, young Tarzan grows up strong and self reliant. He discovers his fathers's hunting knife which allows him to dominate even the fiercest beasts. When a tribal chief kills Kala, Tarzan visits swift vengeance upon him. The terrified natives worship the ape-man powerful enough to slay their leader. But Tarzan is defenseless when he encounters an unimagined new creature, a beautiful Englishwoman, Lady Jane Porter.
Edgar Rice Burrough's masterpiece, Tarzan Of The Apes first appeared in the pulp "All-Star Magazine" in 1912 and was published as a book in 1914. Christened Tarzan (white-skin) by his ape mother Kala, the character was enormously popular and Burroughs wrote 24 sequels up into the 1940s. Enid Markey who costars as Jane reprised the role the same year in the The Romance Of Tarzan. Markey continued to work in TV and films up until her final film appearance in The Boston Strangler (1968).
