Looking for a title (jungle man taken back to society)

Hello,

I am looking for a movie title. I've seen the movie twice long time ago but have no clue about the title.

Summary:
There was either a war or an expedition (etc) in a jungle and a captain/general/etc was shot with an arrow I believe. Anyhow, there was this man who grew up in the jungle (NOT Tarzan!!!) and could not speak. He helped this person survive the attack (basically saved his life) and in exchange the captain (have no clue who he was so let's call him captain) started to teach the man words. One of the first word was "mirror".

Eventually the captain took the guy back with him to society. The captain lived in a mansion/castle. And the man from the jungle encountered various weirdo things as he learned the way of society.

Eventually he could not fit in and was taken back to the jungle.

Anyone might have a clue which movie is this?

Thanks!

'Greystoke' is my guess, and it was Tarzan.

Wasn't there an Arnold movie about him going to New York too?
