    Description

    Tarzan and the Leopard Woman (RKO, 1946). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41"). From the Theaters of Old Detroit Collection.
    In one of Johnny Weissmuller's best Tarzan films for RKO after their acquisition of the property from MGM, he confronts a leopard cult led by Acquanetta (of Captive Wild Woman fame). This one sheet is also generally accepted amongst collectors as being the most attractive of the RKO Tarzan posters. Although many stars were cast over the years as Edgar Rice Burroughs' legendary character, Johnny Weissmuller will forever be remembered as the screen's greatest Tarzan. Linen-backed, the poster still shows fold wear, and tape stains on the top and bottom borders. There is touchup at Johnny Sheffield's credit to address staining.


    Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
