Movie Info

Elmo Lincoln became the first actor to play Edgar Rice Burrough's "Lord of the Jungle" on the screen when he replaced the now-forgotten Winslow Wilson in the 1918 8-reeler Tarzan of the Apes. During the first portion of the film, Tarzan -- aka Lord Greystoke -- is portrayed by juvenile actor Gordon Griffith. The earlier reels detail the deaths of Greystoke's British parents in the jungle, and how the boy was raised by female ape Kala. Years pass: a rescue party, including high-born Jane Porter

remains far truer to the text than most subsequent film versions

The first Tarzan put to film though creaky, is an amazing curio.

Creaky, sure, but this is historical Tarzaniana with Elmo Lincoln as the screen's first (silent) vine swinger.
