Description:

Vintage original 8 x 10" (20 x 25 cm.) single weight glossy black-and-white silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Johnny Weissmuller, Maureen O'Sullivan, Neil Hamilton, C. Aubrey Smith, dir: W. S. Van Dyke; MGM. The very first in the popular MGM series featuring Weismuller and O'Sullivan in the principal roles of Tarzan and Jane. The reign would last for 10 years, with Weismuller continuing the series at RKO. The two films in the series made prior to the Production Code were the films which are best remembered for their naà ve sexiness and adventure. This film was based on the original Edgar Rice Burroughs books and characters about a trader and his daughter encountering a wild man raised by apes when they journey into deepest Africa to locate a legendary elephant graveyard. An elaborate African jungle was built on the backlot of MGM in Culver City, CA, and was used for years thereafter. One of two in the MGM series of films made prior to the Production Code. Not only were the costumes skimpy, but the relationship sexually playful. This still of O'Sullivan and Weismuller is numbered 595-114. Original typed information on the back. Minor corner crease at top left. FINE. Bookseller Inventory #
