After ‘Tarzan – The Wonder Car,’ I didn’t want to do any and every film.

‘A Princess of Mars’ may not have exerted the same colossal pull that Tarzan had on the global imagination, but its influence on generations of readers cannot be underestimated.
Junot Diaz
When I got to know Margot Robbie on the set of ‘The Legend of Tarzan,’ I learned just how important it is to be lovely to everyone you meet.
Ella Purnell
If you love Tarzan, you can read stories from the ‘Jungle Tales of Tarzan,’ where he’s just a kid, all the way up until he has a son of his own and beyond. Same with ‘Batman’ – you can follow him from Gotham, as a kid, to ‘Dark Knight,’ as a cranky old weirdo. I really love that.
Gail Simone
When I was about ten, I was very impressed by the way Tarzan could swing through the trees from vine to vine. No one ever told me, ‘Don’t try this at home.’
James Dobson
There might be children in Somalia or the Arctic who have never heard of ‘Hamlet’ or the ‘Great Gatsby.’ But you can bet they know ‘Tarzan.’

I remember vividly seeing ‘Tarzan’ and Fred Astaire, the Chaplin films, Fred Astaire musicals, MGM, because of my mother. She was just interested in everything and she took me to opera and ballet, and then ballet got me hooked.
Mikhail Baryshnikov
How can a guy climb trees, say Me Tarzan, You Jane, and make a million?
Johnny Weissmuller
If I could choose, I’d be bare feet with animals all around me and living in a tree house. Like Tarzan and Jane, that’s my dream. I’m at my happiest around nature.
Gisele Bundchen
I watched a lot of Douglas Fairbanks movies. He always played the same role with a mustache. Zorro had a mustache. The Musketeer had a mustache. Tarzan had a mustache.
Jean Dujardin
One of the best animated films I’ve seen come out of Disney was the Tarzan movie. I wasn’t crazy about the story or the design on Tarzan’s face, but the traditional animation was spectacular.
Ralph Bakshi
Swimming gave me my start, but my pal Tarzan did the real work. He set me up nicely.
Johnny Weissmuller
I was actually looking at the poster for ‘Tarzan,’ and I was thinking how abs look so different now. These are not your grandma’s abs. They go so deep and so sharp now.
Kumail Nanjiani
Unlike other enduring characters such as ‘Sherlock Holmes’ or ‘Tarzan,’ being the ‘Doctor’ allows you a certain freedom that is both very demanding and very thrilling. It allows you to make the character using elements of yourself.
David Tennant
I don’t think that ‘Just Mohabbat’ or ‘Tarzan’ were a hindrance. ‘Tarzan’ didn’t do well at the box office but I would say the kids loved it.
Vatsal Sheth
My family and our neighbors and friends thought of Africa and its Africans as extensions of the stereotyped characters that we saw in movies and on television in films such as ‘Tarzan’ and in programs such as ‘Ramar of the Jungle’ and ‘Sheena, Queen of the Jungle.’
Henry Louis Gates
In 1984, I starred in ‘Greystoke: The Legend Of Tarzan,’ my first movie. My lines ended up being dubbed by Glenn Close, supposedly because my accent was ‘too southern’. It was completely humiliating at the time. I became a laughing stock. I’m amazed that I managed to pick myself up and dust myself off.
Andie MacDowell
I got my love of animals from the Dr. Doolittle books and my love of Africa from the Tarzan novels. I remember my mum taking me to the first Tarzan film, which starred Johnny Weissmuller, and bursting into tears. It wasn’t what I had imagined at all.

I go back to read ‘Tarzan’ books every now and again or ‘John Carter,’ and you realize Edgar Rice Burroughs is not a great writer by any means. But he was a great storyteller. You wanted to see what happened next.
