    Description

    Tarzan the Ape Man (MGM, 1932). French Double Grande (63" X 96").
    This is the film that started it all. Johnny Weissmuller makes his first appearance as Edgar Rice Burroughs' famed "Lord of the Jungle", with expert direction from W.S. Van Dyke. C. Aubrey Smith plays the adventure seeker James Parker who sets out to find the fabled elephant's graveyard, along with his daughter Jane (Maureen O'Sullivan), and trusted companion Harry Holt (Neil Hamilton). Jane falls in love with the mysterious ape man, and renounces civilization to live with him and Cheetah, and the rest is history. The film was an instant classic and generated countless sequels and adaptations. We are offering here an extremely rare French double grande, stone litho poster from the original release. The bright and very attractive artwork is by noted artist Roland Coudon. The poster has had expert restoration to address a tear on the left side, fold wear, and crossfold separations with chips. There is a minor hole in the center of the blue field that has been filled but not touched up. A stunning and gorgeous item, this special poster will garner much deserved attention. Very Fine- on Linen.
