Tarzan, The Ape Man on the Big Screen

The second event in the Human / Nature series is a chance to see the 1959 classic film Tarzan, the Ape Man

The second of the Museum’s classic film nights, the 1959 Tarzan, The Ape Man is essential viewing for all film- and nature-lovers. With scenes and sounds directly lifted from the 1932 original, this superb version pays due homage to Edgar Rice Burrough’s story of action and adventure in the jungle. Dr Joe Cain, UCL Historian of Science, will introduce the film, and there will be a free glass of wine served during the interval. As the tagline stated in 1959: “Forgotten world of pygmy idol-worshippers! They challenge the taboos of a foreign land”.
