* Bo Derek and Richard Harris once starred in another film titled ''Tarzan The Ape Man'' in 1981, which was a more adult look at the Tarzan mythos, focusing mostly on Jane and featuring a large supply of FanService. The film was a flop since children could not see it, male audience members hoping to see a naked Bo Derek were disappointed to see what was mostly a romance film with Tarzan playing a supporting role, and female audience members were turned off by the more blatant scenes of nudity (if they were interested in seeing a "Tarzan film" to begin with). Derek reportedly firing most of the cast and crew before filming ended did not help matters, either.

* The 1984 film ''Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan'' was an attempt at both a more naturalistic and slightly more faithful adaptation of Burroughs' work, including a depiction of Tarzan's returning to England. Notable that except in the film's subtitle, the name Tarzan is never used in any dialog.

** ''Tarzan the Fearless'' (1933) was released as both a movie and a serial. It starred Buster Crabbe, making him the only actor to play Tarzan, Film/{{Flash Gordon|Serial}}, and BuckRogers. Crabbe, like Weissmuller, was an Olympic gold medalist in swimming, and a rivalry between the two was publicized. (In truth they had been friends for years.)
