Burroughs blends two of his favorite genres-adventure and science-fiction-in this Tarzan tale set partially in the mythical realm of Atlantis. In 1927, this popular tale was adapted for the screen (the sixth Tarzan film ever made) by FBO Pictures. To play the role of his jungle hero, Burroughs himself picked struggling actor James Pierce, who married the author's daughter, Joan. Another struggling actor, Boris Karloff, was cast as Owaza, a native chief. From the Robert and Diane Yaspan Collection.
