#CH326-04  - Rare 1951 "Fury of the Congo" Johnny Weissmuller as Jungle Jim Movie Broadside/Poster
Vintage 13" tall paper movie poster/broadside from the 1951 Johnny Weissmuller movie, "Fury of the Congo". Johnny Weissmuller was very famous as an olympian and then in his movie role as Tarzan. In this movie he played "Jungle Jim". It was part of a series of Jungle Jim movies he did that were very popular. It says that the "Amazon Beauties Lead Johnny Into HIs Strangest Battles". It's a rare poster. Please click the picture to see a more detailed image. Back in the day, when a new movie was going to play at the local theatre, there would be a guy who would run around town tacking these things on bulletin boards, telephone poles, fence posts, or anyplace else where they might be seen. Because most were outdoors, few have survived. Some will have small edge tears or roughness, but this is true of all paper movie broadsides, and they can easily be trimmed for framing. Although, a few small imperfections kind of adds to the look with these. Colors vary. We got them from the estate of famous dealer and friend Bob Secrist. He found them in the storage area of an old theatre up in Northeast Ohio.
