I Was a Hollywood Tarzan
..Denny Miller ...........................
This is a particularly fun and funny episode today. We are going to get the inside scoop about what it is like to be a Hollywood Tarzan, through our conversation with actor Denny Miller. Move over Spock! Did you know that the elephants in the Tarzan movies were the first to wear ear appliances? Did you know that Tarzan used a ladder to get on top of his elephant? Did you consider that with an elephant's rough hide, there quickly develops a severe chafing problem when you are wearing only a loincloth? How about a loincloth made of seashells?? Yes, Tarzan wore one but it was scrapped because it was too noisy - he could not sneak up on the bad guys! Is it true that Tarzan had to be constantly ready to punch his cute little co-star in the nose? What?! Yes, hear all about this and more as we speak with successful character actor and Tarzan star, Denny Miller..
