TARZAN MOVIE CAST: JOHNNY WEISSMULLER and MAUREEN O'SULLIVAN. Signatures: "Sincerely/Johnny/Weissmuller/&" and "Maureen O'Sullivan", 3¼x3¼ paper. WEISSMULLER (1904-1984) won five gold medals as a swimmer at the 1924 and 1928 Olympics, setting many free-style records. He appeared in several sports shorts, then was hired by MGM to play Tarzan onscreen. Beginning in 1932, he starred in 12 Tarzan adventures, meanwhile doing almost no other film work. In the late '40s he quit Tarzan and began starring in a new series, Jungle Jim, while occasionally appearing in other films through the mid '50s, after which he retired from acting. Irish actress O'SULLIVAN (1911-1998) starred in such films as A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (1931), The Barretts of Wimpole Street (1934), David Copperfield (1935), A Day at the Races (1937) and Pride and Prejudice (1941). She played Jane to Weissmuller's Tarzan in six films (1932-1942), creating quite a sensation with her scanty apparel and nude swimming scene in Tarzan and His Mate (1934). Married to director John Farrow until his death in 1963, she is the mother of actresses Mia and Tisa Farrow. She portrayed Mia's mom on film in Hannah and Her Sisters (1986). A frequent TV guest star in the 1950s, she co-anchored Today (1964-1965). Slightly creased and soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
