1975 -- When Mike Douglas had the Tarzan reunion show -- L-R Johnny Weissmuller, Mike Douglas, Gordon Scott, Totie Fields, Jock Mahoney, Buster Crabbe, Denny Miller and James Pierce. Ron Ely seemed not to be able to come but then he was 'only' a TV Tarzan at that time - the others had played him in the movies.

Two swim champs, Johnny Weissmuller and Buster Crabbe. (Thanx to Bobby Copeland.)

Weissmuller and O'Sullivan in Tarzan Escapes (I don't know how they escaped - I would watch the Tarzan movies on the Early Show as a kid and just when everyone ..Tarzan, Jane and Boy... is in peril, my mom would tickle me and not let up until everyone was swinging through the trees into the sunset).

Tarzan eat soup. None for Jane. Umgawa.
