DescriptionTarzan and His Mate (MGM, 1934). Very Fine-. Title Lobby Card (11" X 14"). William Galbraith Crawford Artwork.
This title 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 in that this Tarzan picture was the only one that was never reissued after its initial 1934 release. That was 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. This 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. The "Back Again" refers to this being the sequel to Tarzan the Ape Man (1932). Indications of use include light edge wear, staple holes, and light creases. There is a crease with a surface lift in the right border as well as a few faint stains. Very Fine-.
Estimate: $1,200 - $2,400.
