(1939), presented by the Academy’s Science and Technology Council on Sunday, October 24, at the Academy’s Linwood Dunn Theater in Hollywood.
Tarzan and his mate are Johnny Weissmuller and Maureen O’Sullivan. The son Tarzan finds is Johnny Sheffield, who coincidentally died this past Oct. 15 at the age of 79.
Both Tarzan and His Mate and Tarzan Finds a Son! were popular MGM releases.
