    Description

    Tarzan and His Mate (MGM, 1934). Title Lobby Card (11" X 14"). The film most Tarzan enthusiasts consider the best in the Johnny Weissmuller/Maureen O'Sullivan MGM series was also the one that was never reissued after its initial 1934 release. That was because it pushed the envelope to the limit with sexual innuendo and violence, and even, for a time, included a nude swimming sequence with O'Sullivan's stunt double. This was one of the last straws for the then-forming Hays Production Code office, leading to the heavy censorship that followed for many years to come. Offered here is the extremely rare title card for the film's only release (all the other MGM Tarzan movies were reissued several times). "Back Again" refers to this being the sequel to Tarzan the Ape Man (1932). This wonderful title card has been cleaned and restoration has been done to correct pinholes in the borders, two staple holes in the upper center background, a top and a bottom corner chip on the right side, and an erased pencil mark across Weissmuller's face. A must-have for any serious Tarzan or title card collector. Fine/Very Fine.
