    Description

    Tarzan the Ape Man (MGM, 1932). Insert (14" X 36"). Johnny Weissmuller, a 28 year old Olympic gold medalist made his debut as Tarzan in this lavish M-G-M production, after being spotted by the films screenwriter at his hotel swimming pool. This was the first pairing of Weissmuller and Maureen O'Sullivan in the roles they would be remembered by for the rest of their lives. The posters for this first of the M-G-M series are exceedingly difficult to find. This poster is adorned with wonderful art deco lettering and the sparse image of the ape man swinging through the trees with the shadow of a giant ape behind him. Bright colors, rolled and unrestored in any way makes this beautiful insert a cornerstone in any collection. Very Fine.
