DescriptionTarzan and His Mate (MGM, 1934). Very Fine-. Lobby Card (11" X 14").
This lobby card represents a very special chance to acquire a collectible from what Tarzan enthusiasts consider the best in the Johnny Weissmuller/Maureen O'Sullivan MGM series. It's an even more exclusive opportunity as this Tarzan picture was the only one that didn't have a reissue after its initial 1934 release. This is 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. It 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. Both Weissmuller and O'Sullivan appear in this lovely portrait card, this first that Heritage has ever sold. It shows light edge wear, slightly rounded corners, pinholes, minor creases, and unobtrusive stains. There are thin rust stains around the pinholes, a paper lift in the top left corner, as well as a couple of small pieces of masking tape on the verso. Very Fine-.
Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
