    Description

    Tarzan Finds a Son (MGM, 1939). Insert (14" X 36"). The fourth in the MGM Tarzan series, this popular entry has Tarzan and Jane finding an infant survivor of a plane crash, whom they adopt. Five years later the boy's relatives come looking for the child, knowing he stands to receive a large inheritance. 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. There are the typical fold lines with just a touch of wear, two pinholes in the background graphics, and one small tear in the bottom border that just crosses over into the graphics. Very Fine-.
