X-Rated Tarzan?

August 18, 1996

Re "Law of the Jungle," Aug. 9.

A note to the descendants of Edgar Rice Burroughs: A new X-rated sex movie / CD ROM called "Jungle Heat" appears to be so fully based on your famed ancestor's character Tarzan that you want to sue. Brilliant, just brilliant.

If you had simply kept quiet and stewed privately in your understandably boiling juices, only a relatively small number of porn fans would have seen this product, would have chuckled over it and that would have been that. I mean, the Dallas Cowboys didn't sue the makers of the porn film "Debbie Does Dallas," despite Debbie's appearance in a Cowboys cheerleader outfit. They simply ignored her, and now no one thinks of her when they watch the Cowboys take on an opponent.

What you have done is to give "Jungle Heat" a bazillion dollars of free publicity. This issue is in every newspaper. Everyone and his grandmother will now see this film, to check out the controversy.

No offense, folks, but Cheetah may have more sense than you.
