The 1981 film, in which Derek played Jane Porter, features a beach scene where Tarzan and Jane meet for the first time and are joined by a lion.
Bo Derek has revealed that she was nearly killed on the set of Tarzan, the Ape Man by a rogue lion.
The director of the film, John Derek, also Bo’s husband, actually kept the take of the lion attack in the finished film.
Only the lion went off script and started to attack Derek while she was in the water and there was no animal handler close by.
