WEISSMULLER THE DEFINITIVE TARZAN?
Have you ever found yourself wondering who is the definitive Tarzan? How many times have you asked yourself this question? How many arguments have you had with friends or family? Ever get those pounding headaches that just wont quit? I never have. Not about Tarzan!
Johnny Weissmuller is clearly the definitive Tarzan. For all of you skeptics out there lets go over the facts. Fact #1. Weissmuller is considered one of the greatest swimmers of all time. Fact #2. He won 5 gold medals in the Olympics. Fact #3. He made over 2500 dollars a week in the 30's and 40's. Fact #4. Bagels and cornbeef sandwiches go great with JW Tarzan pictures.
A good question to ask yourself, "Who else played Tarzan"? You probably can't come up with an answer. Your probably one of those freaks who thinks of Bo Derrik who played Jane in that X rated version of Tarzan, but got nothing for good old Tarzan himself.
Please do not burden yourself with this question again.
Who's the definitive Tarzan?
