    Description

    Tarzan Finds a Son (MGM, 1939). Three Sheet (47" X 81"). The fourth in the M-G-M Tarzan series, this popular entry has Tarzan and Jane finding an infant survivor of a plane crash, whom they adopt. Cut to five years later as a search expedition comes to find the child. Weissmuller personally chose Johnny Sheffield for the role as "Boy," and reportedly tutored him in swimming and looked after him during the shooting of the film. Maureen O'Sullivan had become tired of the role of Jane and wanted out of the series, so her death scene was written into the script and shot. But fan protest was so loud that the film was recut with additional scenes showing Jane recovering from her near-fatal wounds. This rare three sheet is in very good to fine shape with the poster still fully intact but an old linen mount job as its greatest defect. Very Good / Fine.
