But who cares where he is when he is played in a new film, The Legend of Tarzan, by Alexander Skarsgård of the HBO vampire series True Blood?
In the 60-odd pictures made about him, though, Tarzan has gone from being an uncomplicated hunk to a troubled toff.
The latest version seen in The Legend of Tarzan is probably the closest to the one imagined by Burroughs, which isn’t necessarily a compliment.
But still, it has to be said, a lot more fun than The Legend of Tarzan.

I am impressed by your vocabulary. Not too many people today know the words oaf much less “tiff.” My tablet isn’t even letting me type it in. And I thought I had a good vocabulary. This movie was consciously made for an international audience and took care to present a new slant on a fantasy legend. I liked it. Especially the historical accuracy. There really was a George Washington Williams and he did keep the US out of the Congo due to the slavery by King Leopold. Entertaining and a historically accurate educational movie. What more could a girl ask for? A buff Tarzan? That has been done so many times. Yawn. This retelling was nice and I was happy to see a great female lead.
