    Description

    Tarzan of the Apes (National Film, 1918). Swedish One Sheet (23" X 35").
    The young Lord Greystoke, portrayed by Gordon Griffith, is carried away by the apes of the jungle, where he will learn their language and be raised as a fellow ape. The legend was born, not only in Edgar Rice Burroughs' novel, but also on the screen with this, the first Tarzan film ever made. Directed by Scott Sidney and starring Elmo Lincoln as Tarzan, Enid Markey as Jane, George B. French and Gordon Griffith, this 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 Heritage first-time offer features dark and moody colors, a lure to audiences of the adventure to come. The poster shows slight edge wear, mild tears, and vertical misfolds. There are a couple of thin dust shadows in the upper and right borders. Folded, Very Fine-.
