This 2nd volume contains the following:
Tarzan Triumphs (1943)
World War II rears its ugly head in this patriotic Tarzan picture. When a Nazi pilot (Rex Williams) crash lands in the jungle, he is nursed back to health by Tarzan (Johnny Weissmuller) and Boy (Johnny Sheffield). The isolationist ape man is vaguely aware that the Nazi is part of an invading German force, but he refuses to become involved with the problems of the world.The Nazis march into a "lost" jungle kingdom, enslaving the citizens and threatening the life of their princess (Frances Gifford). Gradually Tarzan becomes convinced that the Nazis are up to no good, destroys their invasion plans, and restores the princess to her throne.

Tarzan's Desert Mystery (1943)
Released at the height of the war in 1943, Tarzan is once again battling Brownshirts in the Libyan desert. Tarzan meets up with Connie Bryce (Nancy Kelly), an American showgirl, and tangles with mercenary Arabs, legions of Nazi warriors, a giant spider, and a bunch of dinosaurs who somehow escaped extinction. In short, it's Tarzan against every evil villain an American filmmaker could have imagined at the time.

Tarzan and the Amazons (1945)
Tarzan (Johnny Weissmuller) must once more contend with outsiders who invade his jungle domain to hunt for gold. Guarding the valuable ore is a tribe of hostile Amazons, led by Maria Ouspenskaya. The Amazons regard every man as their enemy, and very nearly kill Tarzan before he can rescue them from the villains. Also in the cast are Brenda Joyce as a blonde Jane, Johnny Sheffield as Boy, Barton MacLaine as the principal heavy, and "cult" horror star Aquanetta as an Amazon maiden.

Tarzan and the Leopard Woman (1946)
Tarzan, Jane (Brenda Joyce), their son Boy (Johnny Sheffield), and faithful sidekick Cheta the Chimp stumble upon an entire village in which a peaceful tribe has been wiped out by what looks like murderous leopards. Investigating further, Tarzan confronts Lea (Acquanetta), the queen of a ruthless secret cult of cat people who wear iron claws.

Tarzan and the Huntress (1947)
This time, the Lord of the Jungle runs afoul of an animal-trapping exposition headed by titular huntress Tanya (Patricia Morison). Not wishing to see his jungle friends packed in crates and shipped off to zoos, Tarzan does everything he can to discourage Tanya from seeking out specimens in his territory. The plot then goes off on a different tangent, as Tanya's unscrupulous partner Weir (Barton MacLane) conspires with aspiring despot Prince Ozira (Ted Hecht) to knock off the Prince's benevolent uncle, King Faroud (Charles Trowbridge).

Tarzan and the Mermaids (1948)
The "mermaids" are really tribal pearl divers in this diverting Tarzan adventure. Their livelihood is threatened by an evil white trader (Fernando Wagner), who sets himself up as a "god." With the help of lovely diver Linda Christian, Tarzan defeats the wicked despot, but not before several underwater battles, not the least of which involves an octopus. Mermaids represents the final appearance of Johnny Weissmuller as Tarzan.
