LORD GREYSTOKE: POP STAR & MOVIE STAR

TARZAN Wins An Oscar
2000.03.26
Pop star Phil Collins scored the best original song award for his sentimental "You'll be in My Heart" from the animated Disney film Tarzan. It was his first win in three nominations. Collins thanked his three children who, he said, "really wrote this song for me."

You'll Be in My Heart

Come stop your crying It will be alright Just take my hand Hold it tight I will protect you from, All around you I will be here  Don't you cry For one so small, You seem so strong My arms will hold you, Keep you safe and warm This bond between us,  can't be broken I will be here, don't you cry Cos you'll be in my heart Yes you'll be in my heart From this day on Now and  forever more You'll be in my heart No matter what they say, You'll be here in my heart Always Why can't they understand the   way we feel They just don't trust, what they can't explain I know we're different, deep inside us We're not that different at all  And you'll be in my heart Yes you'll be in my heart From this day on Now and forever more Don't listen to them Cos do they know We need each other To have to hold They'll see in time I know When destiny calls you, You must be strong I may not be   with you, But you got to hold on They'll see in time I know We'll show them together Cos' you'll be in my heart Believe me  you'll be in my heart I'll be there from this day on Now and forever more Oh you'll be in my heart you'll be here in my heart No  matter what they see I'll be with you here in my heart I'll be there, Always Always I'll be with you I'll be there for you always   Always and always Just look over your shoulder Just look over your shoulder Just look over your shoulder I'll be there for  you....

TARZAN STILL ON TOP: Tarzan tops soundtrack chart again
2000.03.24
LOS ANGELES (Billboard) - Me, Tarzan, you, runner-up. The album from the hit animated film moves back to the top of the soundtracks chart for the week ending March 19. The Walt Disney Records disc sold 29,000 units, according to SoundScan figures obtained from industry sources. That's down almost 600 copies from the previous week but still enough to boost it from No. 3.

5. Would You Like to Swing on a Vine?: The Epic Tradition and Edgar Rice Burroughs
Yale-New Haven Teachers Institute
Essay: Narrative ~ Sample Activities ~ Bibliography
by  Anthony F. Franco

Guide Entry to 87.02.05:

Edgar Rice Burroughs was one of the most commercially successful authors of this century and yet is not read with any regularity in the classroom. This unit attempts to introduce Burroughs to the English classroom in grades 7-8 as a writer who could tell a very interesting story. Three of Burroughs’ works: “At the Earth’s Core,” “The Land That Time Forgot,” and of course, “Tarzan of the Apes” will be read by students and will be studied in the context of the epic tradition as examples of the early twentieth century romance and the notion of quest.

Suggested activities as a result of this unit include a study of the nature of conflict as seen in Burroughs and as experienced by students as challenges both now and in later years. Also, students will be introduced to journal writing and will maintain a journal throughout the year. Various other writing assignments in the narrative and descriptive vein will round out the students’ activities as participants. Class discussion regarding Burroughs, the works read, and the nature and remedies of real-life challenges faced by students will provide ample fodder for these intended writing assignments. The unit may be used in its entirety or in part depending upon the number of readings attempted.

The unit can be easily scheduled over a period of from six to eight weeks with one or two days class discussion per week.

(Recommended for English classes, grades 7-8)

7. HELP WANTED
APPEAL FROM THE NETHERLANDS
Ron de Laat and Rob Donkers request the following information concerning the poster and book illustrated below:


SPANISH/MEXICAN MOVIE POSTER
Does someone have any kind of information about the movie featured in this poster? (It is not the

silent movie from 1920)? The movie is NOT a silent movie and there for it's not The Son of Tarzan as we know him. Does someone have this poster for sale?


DANISH BOOK: TARZAN MYTEN
The second question is about a Danish book (Tarzan Myten) about Tarzan (novels, comics, movies, etc). Rob Donkers wants to buy this book but it's hard to find it. Perhaps it's easier to find it this way

Johnny Weissmuller was born in Chicago of Austrian parentage on June 2nd, 1904. As a child he suffered from ill health and his doctors suggested swimming as the only cure -- with astonishing results. The Olympic Swimming Champion, who stands 6 feet 3 inches in height, made his screen debut in short sports films, and because of his magnificent physique was given the title role in Tarzan the  Ape Man. He has been married twice -- in 1931 to Bobbe Arnst, a well known Broadway actress, and in 1933 to Lupe Velez. His latest film is Tarzan and his Mate.
