    The Adventures of Tarzan (Adventures of Tarzan Serial Sales, R-1928). One Sheet (28" X 41.5"). Chapter Six -- "Fangs of the Lion." A smash success upon his first appearance in the October 1912 issue of The All-Story magazine, Tarzan, the creation of novelist Edgar Rice Burroughs, quickly leapt from the pages of the pulps to the silver screen, making his debut movie appearance in 1918's Tarzan of the Apes, with Elmo Lincoln donning the leopard-print loincloth as the Lord of the Jungle. After several sequels, which featured some less-than-imposing ape men, Lincoln returned to the jungle in a 15-chapter serial entitled The Adventures of Tarzan. The production, which used real wild animals and required, according to Numa, the original production company, more time than any other serial yet produced, was plagued with problems, including, in a story that may be apocryphal, a real fight-to-the-death between Lincoln and a lion, who became enraged after being prodded one too many times. The footage of Lincoln's heroic battle can still be seen in the film. The serial proved so popular that it was re-released in 1928, re-edited into a ten chapter version. This fabulous rotogravure poster hails from that re-release, for Chapter 6: Fangs Of The Lion. It has a long tear in the left border, fold and crossfold separations with paper loss, paper missing from the right border, and a crease at the bottom horizontal fold. The wonderful poster, including a great image of Lincoln in the bottom left, is a rare find for any collector of Tarzan material. Fine+ on Linen.
