NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The echoing cry of Tarzan, King of the Apes, will ring out this weekend in a coastal Louisiana oil town.
The Tarzan Festival in Morgan City started with the declaration by Gov. Bobby Jindal of Friday as Tarzan Day in Louisiana.
Author Edgar Rice Burroughs’ tale of the boy who grew up to be king of the jungle was first published 100 years ago.
The first movie version was shot in Morgan City in 1917, a silent film that earned $ 1 million _ startling by standards of the day.
