When a character's been played by 14 different actors on the big screen, there's room for all sorts of interpretations. And that's the best thing about American Movie Classics' 32-film Tarzan marathon, which airs from 8 p.m. tomorrow through 6 a.m. Monday.You get to see almost all of them.In a film career spanning nearly 80 years, Tarzan has been portrayed as everything from mute apeman to dashing man-about-the-jungle. He's fought Nazis and leapt off a New York bridge, journeyed to Guatemala to save a friend, foiled international criminals, mimicked British lords and struggled to save his animal friends from trappers.

We start out this episode back at camp after Tribal Council, where the rest of Tikiano is as amused by Kat finding blindsides “fun and exciting” as I was. Tarzan is trying to hang on, and trying to maneuver himself into a final three scenario; I would say he had no chance, but I also didn't think he'd make it this long. Kim knows her best chance to win would be to take Alicia and Christina to the final three, but that would mean betraying Chelsea, who has been her loyal ally from the start.

Now here's a Tarzan who really swings.It helps, of course, that he's a cartoon. No matter how fine an athlete Johnny Weissmuller might have been, he couldn't entirely defy gravity while swinging through those jungle trees.But an animated ape man can do just that, which makes Disney's "Tarzan" one of the best adaptations of Edgar Rice Burroughs' stories -- best in the sense that this dude really does come across as more ape than man, swinging effortlessly through the trees with blinding speed.

This episode made me happy. There may be hope for this season yet. At camp, in night cam after Tribal Council, Sabrina now has a big ol' target painted on her back because she's smart, straightforward, people like her, and she's articulate enough to convince a jury to see things her way. Alicia think she's in a pretty good position right now because she's none of those things. For once, I agree with her. Treemail is product placed, and leads me to believe that reward will be calls to home, but as always, the family and friends are already on the island.

Gordon Scott may have hung up his loincloth four decades ago, but he was still fondly remembered by some movie fans for his portrayal of jungle superman Tarzan and later roles in westerns and sword-and-sandals gladiator films. The actor - who went from being an unknown Las Vegas hotel lifeguard to Hollywood star overnight, and seemed to vanish overnight after a 24-movie career - died Monday at Johns Hopkins Hospital of complications after several heart surgeries.

Previously: Karma came and smacked Colton upside the head in the form of a bacterial infection, and the merge happened, leaving the men and women at equal numbers. The two tribes (now one tribe called Tikiano) return from Tribal Council to a feast of wine and cheese. I think cheese would be one of the things I would miss the most if I were on "Survivor. " While I reminisce about cheese, Alicia is adding some whine to it, complaining about how Colton getting sick ruined her plans, and how he should have given her the immunity idol.

Me critic. You stink. Not literally. The Tarzan who appears in WB's new Tarzan television series is a remarkably well-groomed and, apparently, well-scrubbed Tarzan. Advancements in hygienic products - the very products that tend to advertise on WB shows, as a matter of fact - seem to have made it very easy to keep up appearances while on the lam from your evil relatives in New York City, no matter how many rooftop leaps you have to perform, how many tall-building gargoyles you have to hang from.

Mission: Impossible III [Paramount] $35 Tom Cruise and director J.J. Abrams are probably suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome because of all the mutual back-slapping they do on the audio commentary and documentaries on the two-disc collectors' edition of Mission: Impossible III. Their mutual admiration society act becomes tiresome but doesn't diminish the well-produced extras. Several featurettes explore the film's complicated production, including one on the high-voltage stunts and action sequences.

Can Troyzan manage to stick around for another week, or will this be the most predictable season of "Survivor" ever? Back from Tribal Council, Tarzan has figured out that the numbers are not in his favor, but he's wrong if he thinks sticking with the women and keeping his head down is the way to go. If Troy gets immunity (which could easily happen), Tarzan is going home. Kim is disturbed that she's been outed as a target -- umm, you've been pulling the strings for a couple of weeks now (out of a total 4)

This week's leading literary adaptation is "John Carter," a movie crafted from a sci-fi tale by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the author who also brought us Tarzan.
