Tarzan's Fight for Life is a 1958 adventure film directed by H. Bruce Humberstone, starring Gordon Scott as Tarzan, Eve Brent as Jane, and Rickie Sorensen as Tarzan's adopted son Boy. The film is based on the characters created by Edgar Rice Burroughs and was produced by Sol Lesser. The film follows Tarzan as he must face off against a group of hunters who are killing endangered animals and threatening the local wildlife sanctuary. Tarzan, with the help of Jane and Boy, must fight to save the sanctuary and prevent the hunters from causing any more harm.

The movie takes place in the deep jungle of Africa, where Tarzan has made his home with Jane and Boy. They lead a peaceful and contented life among the animals that roam the forest, but their tranquility is shattered when a group of hunters arrive, led by the ruthless and greedy Schroeder, played by James Edwards.

Schroeder has arrived with a pack of dogs and a team of hunters in search of big game. His main objective is to kill the animals and take their trophies back to civilization to sell for a profit. He has no regard for the sanctity of the forest or the welfare of the animals that live there.

As soon as Tarzan learns of Schroeder's arrival, he sets out to put a stop to his hunting. But things take a turn for the worse as the hunters capture Boy and use him as bait to trap Tarzan. Helpless and alone, Tarzan must fight for his life against the hunters and their vicious dogs.

The action scenes are well executed, making use of Tarzan's athleticism and strength in the face of danger. The fight scenes are also quite exciting, with Tarzan engaging in hand-to-hand combat against multiple hunters at once, as well as wrestling with wild animals like crocodiles and tigers.

There is also a romantic subplot between Tarzan and Jane, which is woven into the main story effectively. Their relationship is tender and romantic, with Jane supporting Tarzan through his fights while also reminding him of the importance of compassion and kindness towards others.

The film's themes of conservation and environmentalism are also well-handled, with the sanctuary serving as a symbol of the need to protect and preserve the natural world. Tarzan is portrayed as an environmental hero, who stands up against those who seek to harm the animals and disrupt the balance of nature.

Overall, Tarzan's Fight for Life is an enjoyable and exciting adventure film that balances thrilling action scenes with a compelling and heartwarming story. It is a worthy addition to the Tarzan franchise and a fine example of the adventurous spirit of pulp fiction.
