Vacation film from Silver Springs, Florida. I’m not 100% sure, but I’m 98% that the subject here is the movie star Johnny Weissmuller, who brought Edgar Rice Burroughs classic character to life on the silver screen. Weissmuller defined the character for a generation of movie goers in the 1930s the 1940s. And still is probably the best known and well loved version of the ape man. Also Weissmuller was a five time gold medalist in the Olympics.
