Blast From the Past — 1934

Johnny Weissmuller sounds a lot like his on-screen persona, Tarzan. Perhaps the character is not all that much of a stretch for him.

    One of the things I like about your posts Allan is that they often make me look for further information. This one was SO weird I had to look up Johnny’s bio. Fascinating! Married 5 times, never once defeated in competitive swimming, multiple gold medals. And here I only knew he played Tarzan. Go figure!
