Love that masthead gallery it really is a great collection.

So with "The Adventures of Captain Marvel" recently released on Blu-ray (the timing could not be any better!) and Zach Levi in the upcoming starring role (2019) - will Captain Marvel, I mean, Tom Tyler make a masthead some time in 2018?

Never hurts to ask. :)

It could happen... didn't think about Captain Marvel (and had just done a serial one).

I'm sad that I didn't see this masthead the first time it appeared, but I'm very grateful to see it now! :D

I always like what Ivor Novello said about creating the script for the early talkie Tarzan pictures where he came up with "Me Tarzan, You Jane". He said it was the greatest drivel he'd ever written. :D I remember as a child we used to have competitions at school as to who could give the best impression of Johnny Weismuller's famous yell. Ah, yes, the things we did when young... At least the Elmo Lincoln picture didn't steer too far away from the original story - neither did "Greystoke", come to think of it.

Well, how odd. I wrote a post about this masthead and it vanished... never happened in the first ten years...

Well, anyway, the gist of it was that there are three legendary pulp fiction characters who have lasted to the 21st century, played by many actors and still putting out starring films in the 21st century— Dracula, Sherlock Holmes and Tarzan of the Apes. 100 years ago, Elmo Lincoln was the first one, with Enid Markey his Jane, and though many of us must have seen this on Blackhawk 8mm back in the day, it took till quite recently for the first discussion here of the film.

In any case, here's to one of the enduring fantasy figures of action cinema, in his debut.

A fine choice Mike. Some films and the stories they are based on will never be ranked as "classic," at least among those whose job seems to be making such rankings. But for everybody else some tales and their characters transcend their modest origins and continue to speak to us. Tarzan is surely one of those.

For February, Myrna Loy: just because.

There is never any other reason required for Myrna. She just is.

I've seen silents, with men going gaga over other women, and ignoring Myrna and wondered when their blindness would clear up.

What’s the source for this picture, Mike?

Where's this photo from? A movie, a photo session?

I confess that I didn't recognize her.

Just a glamour shot, so far as I know. There was no indication of where it was from, where I found it.

I hadn't seen this image before, but I'd know those cheekbones anywhere!

Great picture. I love the tousled hair.

I can't decide if she's emerging from the bedroom, or heading into it. In either case, I'm gonna follow her and see what happens.
