The Adventures of Tarzan (Numa, 1921). Lobby Card (11" X 14"). One of the most popular fictional characters ever created, Tarzan was a massive hit from the publication of his first story in a 1911 issue of The All-Story Magazine. By 1918, he made the leap to the silver screen, with Elmo Lincoln in the title role. Sequels came thick and fast, with various degrees of success without Lincoln in the lead until, in 1921, it was decided to return him to the leopard-print loincloth he had worn several years earlier. The result was The Adventures of Tarzan, a 15-chapter serial based on author Edgar Rice Burroughs's novels The Return of Tarzan and Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar that was destined to become one of the top hits of the year, eclipsing even such classic films as Rudolph Valentino's The Sheik, and D. W. Griffith's Dream Street. Posters from this particular jungle epic is exceedingly scarce, with only a handful of lobby cards known to exist. This exceptional lobby card shows pinholes in the borders and corners, a slight stain in the top left, and light corner creasing. These are minimal concerns, however, especially considering the incredible rarity and desirability of this amazing find. Very Fine-.
