Consider Tarzan. 48 movies. 26 novels. 65 million copies sold worldwide. But in cinema's eye only one actor is really Tarzan and that's Johnny Weissmuller. In 12 films, made between 1932 and 1948, the former Olympic Gold Medal winning swimmer set the pace for tone, action, humor and adventure. The gold standard for Tarzan films remains the first six he made with MGM. Now at last Warner Bros has released a jungle full of Tarzan films on DVD including the six MGM classics.
