“Everyone has to have that–to get away from what they’re doing and to be transported to a place, whether it’s intellectual or just going to the funny farm. It’s something that’s comparatively cheap to do, and you get great enjoyment out of it. When a film comes on, I don’t try to analyze it, although subconsciously that happens anyway. I don’t say, `Well, how did they do that background or get that shot?’ Bullshit. I get into the story, and sometimes the photography is so beautiful. I’m a fan.” – Gordon Scott, 11th Tarzan

    I thought Johnny Weismuller was best… but the idea of a tarzan is a bit politically incorrect…

    Dwayne – Who knew there were at least 11 Tarzans? Not me – I cold name two if pressed. As for politically incorrect, that describes an awful lot of entertainment that is available, across the spectrum politically speaking. Probably not a large factor when it comes to financing, wouldn’t you agree? /Best, Barry
