    Description

    Tarzan of the Apes (First National, 1918). Lobby Card (11" X 14"). Adventure.
    Starring Elmo Lincoln, Enid Markey, True Boardman, Kathleen Kirkham, George B. French, Gordon Griffith, Colin Kenny, Thomas Jefferson, Bessie Toner, Jack Wilson, Louis Morrison, Stellan Windrow. Directed by Scott Sidney.This was the first Tarzan movie ever made, and is based on Edgar Rice Burroughs' original novel Tarzan of the Apes. This film may be the most faithful cinematic rendering of Burroughs' first Tarzan novel to date. Lincoln would appear in two sequels including the serial The Adventures of Tarzan two years later. This card features Elmo Lincoln in a classic pose, cradling the body of his dead surrogate ape "mother." The card has had some excellent restoration for border pinholes, chips and tears in the left border, a tear in the left side into the image, and small tears in the right side. Fine.
