    Description

    Tarzan the Ape Man (MGM, 1932). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style D.
    Here it is! The first time we have ever seen the other style one sheet for the first Johnny Weissmuller Tarzan film. Never seen for decades, this original 1932 poster (unlike the other style one sheet) actually portrays Weissmuller and co-star Maureen O'Sullivan as they appear in the film. The discovery of the only known copy of this one sheet is incredible! Based on the famous adventure novels by Edgar Rice Burroughs, this initial entry into MGM's series was a tremendous success, with a total of six films done at the studio starring Weissmuller and O'Sullivan. Weissmuller then went on to RKO to make six more! Although there were previous Tarzan films, the MGM versions achieved the greatest popularity with movie audiences. Prior to the excellent restoration, there were pinholes in the bottom corners and one each in the background corners, There was a small chip in the "T" of Tarzan and a small chip in the second "A" of Tarzan in the titles. There were very small bits of paper loss in Weissmuller's arm and in O'Sullivan's cheek. There has been minor touchup to the folds. The stone litho poster has retained its extraordinary brilliance of color and is in incredible condition. Very Fine on Linen.
