Tarzan of the Apes'
Tarzan of the Apes' is a series of books written by Edgar Rice Burroughs. His books were made into movies starring Johnny Weissmuller as the king of the apes. The series spawned other movies, like "Tarzan and Jane", "Tarzan Finds a Son" among others. Later, other actors would play the part of the ape man in more recent movies over the years like Christopher Lambert in "Greystoke: the Legend of Tarzan" and an animated movie with Tony Goldwyn as the voice of Tarzan, which won an Oscar for best musical soundtrack for Phil Collins, with the song, You'll Be in My Heart. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tarzan_of_the_Apes [Apr 2005]

The first major instance of censorship under the Production Code involved the 1934 film Tarzan and his Mate, in which brief nude scenes involving actress Maureen O'Sullivan (actually, a body double was used) were edited out of the master print of the film. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Production_Code#1934_changes_to_the_Code [Apr 2005]

Umgowa is rumoured to be a perfectly good Swahili word meaning go... but more likely it is was the invention of MGM screenwriter Cyril Hume (and Weissmuller discoverer). For his books, Burroughs created a complete ape but Hume, who adapted Tarzan, the Ape Man (1932) for the screen, reduced Tarzan's language abilities considerably by inventing the all-purpose command "Ungawa," which could mean "up," "down," "halt" or "go."
