    Description

    Tarzan and His Mate (MGM, 1934). Midget Window Card (8" X 14"). This was the second in the MGM/Tarzan series, considered by many to the best. Irving Thalberg, head of production at MGM, insisted on sparing no expense on the Tarzan series with Johnny Weissmuller. Thus the first two films cost approximately one million dollars each to produce, an astounding sum during the height of the depression. Offered in this lot is the rare format Midget Window Card as they were called in the pressbooks of the era. These cards were usually displayed in the cigar case at drugstores or restaurants. Fine- with a chip in the lower right corner, and another in the upper right corner, but do not at all detract from the wonderful image.
