Tuesday Tomes is a weekly book review of mainly vintage books. If you’ve reviewed a book recently, send me an e-mail and I will link to your post.
This may seem like an unusual choice for me but I really loved this book. Growing up with the Tarzan movies (anyone else remember Million Dollar Movies on TV?) I thought I knew the Tarzan story…boy was I wrong.
His daughter Joan married James Pierce, the actor who played Tarzan in the 1927 movie “Tarzan and the Golden Lion” in 1928 and they were married for 44 years until her death in 1972. They were the voices of Jane and Tarzan on the Tarzan radio program from 1932-34.
And of course any discussion of Tarzan would be incomplete without Johnny Weissmuller.
