The short-shorts, the racism, the bad acting: pure five-star evil!
I'd like to think that the people responsible for this died long ago...of bowel cancer...in a part of the world where morphine was yet unknown.
According to Hollywood lore, the black children were supposed to trip and fall running away from Boy Tarzan. When they did do it with enough comedy, the director strung up piano wire, leading to several of the child actors with lacerated shins, bleeding on set.
When Shirley Temple failed to perform, they sent her to a black box with nothing to sit on but a block of ice.

This raped my brain.
A panoply of evil.
This is what people at that time believed...and many still believe.

As bad as all the racism and imperialism and everything else may be, the real criminal here is the awful foley artist.
After watching this I have the urge to get some kerosene and a wire brush and take a shot at scrubbing the white off my skin.
