THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN OF OUR TIME IN THE MOST EROTIC ADVENTURE OF ALL TIME.
After her mother’s death, Jane Parker (Bo Derek) travels to Africa where she eventually tracks down her father (Richard Harris), a hunter looking for a mythical ”white ape”. 10 (1979) turned Derek into a huge sex symbol and this was her first professional collaboration with her husband, a reboot of the Tarzan legend that focuses primarily on Jane. Not a bad idea, but the effort takes turns provoking derisive laughs and utter boredom. Meant to look erotic, but poorly directed and edited, with amateurish acting.
1981-U.S. 112 min. Color. Produced by Bo Derek. Directed and photographed by John Derek. Cast: Bo Derek (Jane Parker), Richard Harris (James Parker), Miles O’Keeffe (Tarzan), John Philip Law, Wilfrid Hyde-White.
