Tarzan Swings Into Rochester

Motion Picture Herald, February 28, 1948:

"Double Tarzan Treat, promoted by Lester Pollock, at Loew's Rochester theatre, where plenty of kids who remember and plenty more who have never seen the Jungle Hero, will be giving that Tarzan yell. Unusual lobby display, above, for a double return date in a first-string theatre." 

Elmo Lincoln, the screen's first Tarzan, appears as a circus roustabout in Tarzan's New York Adventure Gordon Griffith plays Tarzan as a boy before Lincoln's appearance as the adult "Lord of the Jungle.")
