Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan's Desert Mystery, the 1943 Wilhelm Thiele Africa action adventure jungle thriller ("Mightiest of Tarzan thrillers!"; "See boy trapped in the web of the murderous giant spider!"; "See Tarzan's fierce death battle with prehistoric monsters!"; "See Tarzan, and his friends flee the treacherous deadly sandstorm!"; "See Tarzan in the grip of the strange man-eating plant!"; "Based upon the characters created by Edgar Rice Burroughs"; "From a story by Carroll Young") starring Johnny Weissmuller (in the title role as Tarzan), Nancy Kelly, Johnny Sheffield (as Boy), Otto Kruger, Joe Sawyer, Lloyd Corrigan, Robert Lowery, Frank Puglia, Phil Van Zandt and Cheetah (the chimpanzee). Note that this was the second RKO Tarzan, and once again, Maureen O'Sullivan could not be hired, because she was an MGM contract player, and RKO did not want to cast a "new" Jane, so they once again explained her absence by saying that she was away, working as a nurse for the British troops in World War II!

What IS linenbacking? Learn More

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: very good. The poster had tiny bits of paper loss in the vertical fold between the middle and bottom crossfolds, with a lesser amount of wear on the other folds. Its borders were folded back at one time. Overall, the poster was in very good condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was nicely backed onto a thinner linen, and it displays well!
