This is a VERY RARE original 6 x 8 inch press photo of Olympic champion swimmer and Hollywood newcomer, JOHNNY WEISSMULLER showing off his physical perfection in this rare slice of beefcake to promote the role created by Edgar Rice Burroughs. You can see in the image that Weissmuller is wearing a different style of loincloth then the one he would finally wear in the film. This portrait pre-dates his debut in MGM’s, “TARZAN, THE APE MAN” (1932) by five months. The back of the photo is dated Oct.31, 1931 (Halloween) and the film debuted in New York City the following year in March.25, 1932. Well Documented Photo! The photo is in VERY FINE condition with minor surface, edge and corner wear. Scarce Portrait! Rare Offering! I do combine shipping on multiple items. Shipping in Canada and the USA is 12.00. (I take my packaging and shipping very seriously, see my feedback) I will also ship Internationally, Tracked Packet-International for 40.00. Payment is due within 7 days of auction ending.
Please Note: I do not make money on shipping charges and will refund the difference.
