An authoritative insight into the life of the man most film fans consider the "one and only" Tarzan - Olympic swimming champion Johnny Weissmuller -- this book offers an intimate look at Weissmuller's early life, middle years, and later decline, through swimming training, Olympic triumphs, failed marriages, a Hollywood life as Tarzan of the Apes, and subsequent career as Jungle Jim.
Written by his only son, this biography is a sensitive yet unsentimental portrayal of the man who was Tarzan to movie fans around the world. Johnny Junior's inside perspective on his father's life and career includes interviews with his father's celebrity friends and former wives, recollections of conversations with his father over the years, and family stories involving international icons such as Humphrey Bogart, Errol Flynn, Robert Mitchum, Joe Louis, and many others. There are "surprises" in the text and many photos from private collections that have never before been printed or seen by the general public.
Roger Moore: "Johnny Weissmuller-he was a great Tarzan."

A swinging tale of a Hollywood legend in a legendary time...
Tarzan, My Father is the authoritative biography of the first, and, for many, the only,
Tarzan: Olympic swimming champion Johnny Weissmuller. Johnny Weissmuller, Jr.,
his only son, offers an intimate look at the man who played Tarzan to movie
fans around the world. His father's early life, middle years, and eventual decline
are all carefully chronicled, from his Olympic triumphs to the dusk of his acting
career as Jungle Jim.

With the help of his brother's birth certificate, Hungarian-born Johnny Weissmuller
obtained his American passport and immediately began misrepresenting himself
as a native of Windber, Pennsylvania. In 1924 he acted as ambassador for his
unwittingly adoptive country at the Olympic Games, where he won three gold medals. More medals would follow - along with failed marriages, a brilliant acting
career as Tarzan of the Apes, and friendships with icons such as Humphrey Bogart.

Johnny Jr.'s inside perspective on his father's life and career includes debunks
popular myths and includes interviews with celebrity friends and former wives and
recollections of shared family moments. Tarzan, My Father is a work to be cherished
by any Tarzan aficionado and a must for all fans of the silver screen.

Excerpt
"In Austria we loved Johnny Weissmuller and his Tarzan movies. I remember
when I was six years old, my father took me to see Weissmuller when he opened
up a swimming pool in our town."
- Arnold Schwarzenegger
