Synopsis / Plot
Two white traders, James Parker and Harry Holt, are preparing to leave on a safari to find the fabled elephants' graveyard. The former's daughter Jane arrives unexpectedly and despite paternal protests insists on accompanying them. In the face of hostile natives and a forbidding escarpment, the safari reaches the domain of Tarzan, a white man raised by apes. The "white savage" kidnaps Jane, and after a period of adjustment during which fear becomes affection, the girl dutifully returns to her father.
