"Tarzan, the Ape Man" (1959) is an action adventure film starring Denny Miller as Tarzan, Joanna Barnes as Jane, Cesare Danova, and Robert Douglas. The movie is loosely based on Edgar Rice Burroughs' novel "Tarzan of the Apes", and is a remake of the classic 1932 film of the same name. The movie was directed by Joseph M. Newman.

A fair amount of footage was taken directly from the 1932 version rather than being reshot, including scenes of Tarzan swinging on vines and the elephants' destruction of a pygmy village. A scene of Tarzan fighting a crocodile was reused from "Tarzan and His Mate", the sequel to the 1932 film. Other footage was reused from "King Solomon's Mines". Tarzan's distinctive call was also taken from the original version.

The 1959 movie is among a list of motion pictures shown to the public at the September 2007 film festival, the Mid atlantic nostalgia convention in Aberdeen, Maryland. Denny Miller, the star of the movie, was in attendance.

Plot

The plot of the film reprises that of the 1932 version, with James Parker (Douglas) Harry Holt (Danova) and Parker's daughter Jane (Barnes) on an expedition in Africa in which they encounter Tarzan, a wild man raised by apes. Various adventures ensue.
