(July 31, 2006 - Burbank, CA) – Johnny Weissmuller swings back into action with Warner Home Video’s "The Tarzan Collection Volume 2" debuting on October 31. Following the huge success of WHV’s first Weissmuller "Tarzan" set in 2004, this new DVD collection includes the home video debut of Weissmuller’s last six Tarzan films, presented on three double-feature discs. Originally made at RKO, these films feature actress Brenda Joyce, assuming the role of Tarzan’s beloved Jane. Although other actors would later play the role, these films exemplify why Weissmuller, the five-time Olympic champion, was the definitive Tarzan, and the one to pave the way for future interpretations of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ jungle hero. During his acting career, Weissmuller starred in 12 "Tarzan" features for both MGM and RKO. This collection features "Tarzan Triumphs"/"Tarzan’s Desert Mystery," "Tarzan and the Amazons"/"Tarzan and the Leopard Woman" and "Tarzan and the Huntress"/"Tarzan and the Mermaids." These six films which were never available on videocassette, are all new to DVD, and will sell as a collection only, for $39.92 SRP. Orders are due September 26. With operations in 90 international territories Warner Home Video, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, commands the largest distribution infrastructure in the global video marketplace. Warner Home Video's film library is the largest of any studio, offering top quality new and vintage titles from the repertoires of Warner Bros. Pictures, Turner Entertainment, Castle Rock Entertainment, HBO Home Video and New Line Home Entertainment.
