abt Searle's serial "Son of Tarzan" ... from "ERBzine":
Hundreds of actresses auditioned for the part of Meriem which demanded a unique combination of beauty and jungle-ruggedness. Popular singer and dancer Manilla Martan was chosen for the role.
Over the years there have been numerous rumours of a love triangle on the set between Searle, Martan, and (director) Harry Revier.
