    Description

    Tarzan Escapes (MGM, R-1954). Very Fine-. Italian Horizontal Photobusta (19.25" X 13.5") Silvano "Nano" Campeggi Artwork.
    Perhaps the most controversial of the Tarzan pictures made at MGM, this exciting third entry in the series was a lavish production. Lots of money was spent on the film and the preview audiences were very unhappy with the results, stressing that it was too violent for them. The film was dramatically re-edited with reshot scenes for a more approving premiere. The story deals with Tarzan being captured by a big game hunter who wants to take him back to civilization to exhibit him. Presented at Heritage for the first time, this Italian photobusta features dramatic artwork of Johnny Weissmuller by Silvano "Nano" Campeggi. It has light creases, pinholes, and unobtrusive stains. There are minor tears, faint toning, and a tax stamp in the lower right.


    Estimate: $500 - $1,000.
