2012 tcm SUTS Blogathon Day 3: Johnny Weissmuller
Another day passed, another great success! Thanks, bloggers and readers! Now it’s on to DAY THREE!
Is there an actor more closely associated with a character than Johnny Weissmuller is with Tarzan? An argument could be made, I suppose, but Weissmuller’s name would certainly be in the conversation. While not as popular as John Wayne and not as beloved as Myrna Loy, Weissmuller is still covered in this blogathon, proving that the classic film fan-base is large and loyal!
First up is Leticia with Critica Retro looks at The Family of Tarzan. (Note: Not only is the classic film fan-base large and loyal, it’s international too! Be sure to hit the appropriate translation widget to the right of the article!)
Also today, Cliff with Immortal Ephemera goes three-for-three in the blogathon with another great press clipping-based entry.
Ivan from Thrilling Days of Yesteryear joins us with an entertaining piece entitled Tarzan Takes Manhattan.
