TARZAN CENTENNIAL: Author Edgar Rice Burroughs introduced the noble savage Tarzan of the Apes to magazine readers 100 years ago, and detailed his adventures over the course of 25 books throughout the 1910s, ‘20s, ‘30s and ‘40s. The character first appeared onscreen in 1918, but didn’t find his ideal interpreter until Olympic swimmer Johnny Weissmuller donned the loin cloth in W.S. Van Dyke’s Tarzan the Ape Man (1932-99 min.). After a brief intermission, Cedric Gibbons’s Tarzan and His Mate (1934-105 min.). Both movies co-star Maureen O’Sullivan as Jane. 1:30 p.m.
