During the 1920s, Weissmuller earned himself recognition as the best all-around amateur swimmer in the US.

He'd be laughed out of the pool with those times in a current Olympic games.

I'm going to have to come up with something like this. I want Rob Zombie's Living Dead Girl played at my funeral. My sister want's a recording of someone screaming "Help, I'm still alive, let me out!". By telling everyone, none of us are going to flinch if she does start screaming from in the coffin.

Jungle Jim (film)




Jungle Jim was originally a comic strip character created by the legendary Alex Raymond, who also created Flash Gordon. Universal made a serial based on the comic back in the 1940s, starring Grant Withers. The character didn’t reappear in film until the late 1940s when Columbia started cranking out the low-budget features starring Johnny W. The series as a whole is entertaining, but they were definitely made for the Saturday matinée crowd, back when they had Saturday matinees, and Columbia stuck to the usual jungle movie formula for the most part.
