Gordon Griffith - First Movie Tarzan Most film history sources will list Elmo Lincoln as the first actor to play Tarzan on screen (in the 1918 silent film Tarzan of the Apes). That's not entirely true. In that same silent film, a 10-year-old boy named Gordon Griffith played the young Tarzan well before Lincoln appeared on the screen. It was a challenging role for the boy actor. Griffith was required to do his own climbing and acrobatic stunts and interact with live chimpanzees--which he did excellently. True to the Edgar Rice Burroughs book, Tarzan wore no clothes as a youth, so most of Griffith's scenes were shot with him totally nude. There was no national film code in 1918, but some scenes that showed too much of Griffith from the front were cut by local censors, including those in Chicago. Thus the public domain prints of the movie vary in length and in the amount of time Griffith was on the screen. Griffith, who like Tarzan lost both his parents at a young age, spent most of his life in the movie industry. He died in 1958 of a heart attack at the age of 51.

National Anthem 1952 World Series A sound bite from the golden age of baseball: Mel Allen introduces organist Gladys Goodding, who plays and sings the national anthem before Game #7 of the 1952 World Series at Brooklyn's Ebbets Field. Goodding was the organist at Ebbets Field from 1942 through 1957 and at all sporting events held at Madison Square Garden from 1937 to 1963. Goodding's last gig at MSG occurred shortly before her death from a heart attack on November 18, 1963.

Metropolis Metropolis is such an amazing movie. Perhaps one of the earliest science-fiction movies I have ever fallen in love with. If you're a fan of romantic science fiction movies, or silent films, this is a must see classic. Though its history is a flop in Weimar Germany, and its original film was lost throughout history, it is an interesting movie to watch. The special effects were ahead of it's time, the movie being from 1927, it is amazing how scenes like the Man-machine's transformation was carried out. I would recommend this to any sci-fi fan.
