Maureen O’Sullivan No Average Jane by David Fury
Artist’s Press 2007, 520 pages, 150+ photos, $40

The first full-length biography of the beloved Irish actress Maureen O’Sullivan, after several years of research, has been published by Artist’s Press. Author David Fury has also written biographies of Burt Lancaster, Chuck Connors, and Olympic swimming champion Johnny Weissmuller, also fondly remembered as Tarzan of the movies.
While O’Sullivan is remembered as Jane of the Tarzan pictures, she was a major star with MGM in the 1930s and had lead roles in many classic films including The Thin Man (1934), The Barretts of Wimpole Street (1934), David Copperfield (1935), A Day at the Races (1937), A Yank at Oxford (1938), and Pride and Prejudice (1940). The talented actress starred in 70 films over a sixty-year career, added radio acting to her repertory in the 1940s, and television drama when the medium boomed in the 1950s.

In 1962 she made a critical career move to the legitimate stage in the hit comedy, Never Too Late, which ran for two years on Broadway. In 1965 the lead actors of O’Sullivan and Paul Ford starred in a screen version of the play. The actress stayed on the stage for over 30 years and had another Broadway success in 1980, Mornings At Seven, which won the Tony Award for Best Revival. Maureen also was presented a special Drama Desk award for her performance.

After being off the big screen for twenty years, she made a strong comeback in Hannah and Her Sisters (1986), with one of the finest portrayals of her career. Maureen landed another memorable character as Kathleen Turner’s grandmother in Peggy Sue Got Married (1986), and had featured roles in several additional dramas over the next few years.

Maureen was also a busy mother and had seven children with first husband John Farrow, who died of a heart attack in 1963. She married James Cushing in 1983, and their very happy relationship lasted until her death in 1998. This biography follows her fascinating life after being discovered in Ireland at age eighteen by director Frank Borzage, who brought her to Hollywood to star in Song O’ My Heart (1930) with the legendary Irish tenor, John McCormack.

Her life became a storybook tale when she was chosen to co-star with Johnny Weissmuller in a series of Tarzan pictures, including Tarzan, the Ape Man (1932), the classic Tarzan and His Mate (1934), and four more jungle adventures. Maureen loved acting and never retired. She was still plying her trade as an octogenarian when her fellow actresses of the 1930s were long gone from the scene. In later years she accepted her legacy as Jane to Weissmuller’s Tarzan, but in this biography you will discover that she was "No Average Jane."

Tarzan Triumphant - I am the Apeman: The Board Game
Created by Michael Tierney

Game Description: 

"For some time Tarzan lay where he had fallen upon the floor of the treasure chamber beneath the ruined walls of Opar. He lay as one dead; but he was not dead. At length he stirred. His eyes opened upon the utter darkness of the room. He raised his hand to his head and brought it away sticky with clotted blood. He sniffed at his fingers, as a wild beast might sniff at the life-blood upon a wounded paw. . . . What was he? Where was he? . . . The accident he did not recall, nor did he recall aught of what had led up to it." ~ Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar 

Two Games in One! Tarzan's back in a board game that captures the essence of those most adventurous tales of the world's most famous hero. As so often happened on his adventurous road, Tarzan has been struck with amnesia and it is up to you to figure out who is the true apeman. By overcoming obstacles and out smarting your opponent (who is also trying to prove who the real apeman is) you prove that you are the true apeman. A game for the whole family to enjoy! 

Mode One: It is yours to plunge into the sprawling jungles around the mythical city of Opar and learn who is the true Apeman! Up to seven players lead their own Waziri warriors and animal allies in a mad dash to seize the Golden City. Your opponents will try to stop you by killing your warriors, you and your animals, but it is up to you to seize the five gates of that jewel of a city. Once you've done that you've proven that you are the true apeman and Lord of the Jungle.

Mode Two: Jane has been trapped and buried in the Treasure Vaults of Opar! It is up to the true Tarzan to rescue her. Tarzan and his allies must dash to Opar, seize the treasure and cart it back to his own lost city. Only once Jane is uncovered can Tarzan or one of his animal allies pick her up and carry her to safety. Of course, every imposter on the board will be out to steal her away. 

Each player begins play with 18 Waziri warriors, 9 animal allies and 1 Tarzan piece. There are a total of 8 of Edgar Rice Burroughs' lost cities on the gameboard, with jungle trails, rivers, lakes, swamps and mountains to cross. Then you have your opponents to contend with. Of course, if you can't take the pressure, you can always do like the imposter in Tarzan and the Golden Lion, and throw yourself in a river!

Karen Blixen ~ Isak Dinesen (1885-1962)
The Baroness Karen Blixen, later known as the writer Isak Dinesen, lived on a coffee plantation in the highlands of Kenya for eighteen years, beginning in 1913. In 1931, after losing her farm to bankruptcy and her lover in a tragic plane crash, she left Africa for her native Denmark, never to return.  But in the succeeding years, between her brillian books of short fiction, she published two memoirs and a volume of letters about her African experience. These works, especially Out of Africa, are classics of descriptive prose -- no other writer has portrayed the African landscape in all its variety and moods, the wild animals, and the native peoples with such vividness, passion and acuity.

The Adventures of Tarzan
Featuring Elmo Lincoln and Louise Lorraine
Tinted & scored, with restored footage, title cards & cliffhanger endings!
A 10-chapter Serial Squadron re-release adapted from the original 1921 serial
Produced by Louis Weiss ~ Directed by Robert F. Hill
Restored and Designed by Eric Stedman ~ Music by Roderick Jackson 
A new state-of-the-art digital transfer and reconstruction of one of the most popular serials of all time, in 10 chapters, tinted and with sound effects as presented in the re-release, and with a new musical score. 

This serial, a national sensation on its original release, has not been seen in serial form for many years. Adapted from the concluding chapters of Edgar Rice Burroughs' The Return of Tarzan, the serial's major players are Tarzan (Elmo Lincoln, in his second and final appearance as Tarzan), Jane (Louise Lorraine), Tarzan's arch enemy Rokoff and Queen La of Opar. Tarzan's companions are Tantor the elephant and two ape friends: a female called Ara and a male (from Opar) named Og. Tarzan, now allied with the French Secret Service, pursues his arch enemy, international criminal and blackmailer Rokoff (Frank Whitson) and his cohort, rogue French officer Gernot (George Momberg), who have come to Africa to plunder its treasures. Rokoff also steals from Tarzan the formula for a deadly gas and lusts after Jane (16 years old at the time of filming), complicating matters a great deal when he inscribes a map to the treasure room of the lost city of Opar on her back. After many adventures in the desert, jungle, and the city of Sagarone, the entire cast has it out in Opar under the eyes of Queen La (Lilian Worth), who wants Tarzan to lead her army of wild-men. Plenty of amazing stunts, earthquakes, fires, and deathtraps in this fast-paced serial involving live lions and other wild animals, and a memorable performance by the amazing vine-swinging, villain-bashing, chest-beating Elmo Lincoln, who had so much fun doing this he was willing to wrestle real lions onstage to promote the serial in 1921. Future Tarzan Frank Merrill appears in a "chorus" role in this serial as an Arab raider. 

Music The musical score employing African instruments and flute is by Roderick Jackson and associates of the Palms Down Afro-percussion troupe in NYC. 

Picture A beautiful digital transfer of this title is now complete and the project is now being assembled and scored. The serial is presented in the unique 3-color Malavision toning technique which gives a more natural appearance to scenes by allowing the use of multiple hues in connection to corresponding brightness values without colorization.

This is a 2-DVD Set with 20-minute extended introductory prologue of scenes from Tarzan of the Apes (1918) and plot summary which sets up the story of the serial (which was actually directly continued from the three previous Tarzan films, Tarzan of the Apes, The Romance of Tarzan and The Revenge of Tarzan), illustrated menus, scene markers within chapters, lobby card & poster reproductions & stills, deleted scenes and stunt performer clips. 

DVD SIDE 1 / Prologue: Tarzan of the Apes / 1 The Return of Tarzan / 2 City of Gold / 3 Stalking Death / 4 Flames of Hate / 5 The Ivory Tomb 

DVD SIDE 2 / 6 The Hidden Foe / 7 Dynamite Trail / 8 The Jungle's Prey / 9 Flaming Arrows / 10 The Last Adventure 

SPECIAL FEATURES / Stills & Memorabilia / Edgar Rice Burroughs Interview / Deleted Scenes / 15-minute extended "trailer" of upcoming DVD release Beatrice Fairfax

Notes for historians and completists: Most of the serial's important original content, including all the key action sequences and cliffhangers, appears in this version, which was prepared from 3 different editions of the original 15-chapter serial. Chapter 1 includes material from the original serial's chapter 1. Chapter 2 includes material from original chapters 2 and 3. 3 from 4 and 5, 4 from 5 and 6 and chapter 5 of this version, which is quite complete, was chapter 7 in the original. Chapters 8 and 9 in the 1921 version were comparatively irrelevant "filler" chapters in which renegade Waziri natives harass Tarzan, tying him to a stake etc. for no particularly important reason. These chapters are a side trip which do not advance the plot and were probably excised from the re-release version for that reason. Anyway, Chapter 6 of the Squadron version contains material from chapters 10 and 11, in which the serial gets back to its main story, and its chapters 7, 8, 9 and 10 correspond very closely to chapters 12, 13, 14, and 15 of the original serial. Two brief scenes (including one which appears to be from the missing chapter 8), which do not resolve or fit into the continuity have been included on the DVD as "deleted scenes."

A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs

May 11 - June 4
Thursday, Friday & Saturday 8:00pm ~ Sunday 2:00pm
Playwrights' Center
2301 Franklin Ave East, Minneapolis
TICKETS: $18; $15 Students/Seniors
Phone: 612.581.2229

A Princess of Mars begins when Civil War veteran John Carter is mysteriously transported to the red planet, where tribes of Martians live in a state of perpetual warfare. His Earth-acclimated muscles make him the greatest warrior of them all; but martial honor means nothing to him, because he has fallen in love with a beautiful Martian princess. Does she love him in return? He must fight his way across the planet to find out.

This production – written and directed by producing artistic director Steve Schroer – will be staged with more raw theatricality than any previous Hardcover show. Masks and puppet heads will help to present Martians and the weird native wildlife. Costumes and other design elements will draw upon Earth cultures from Africa to China to ancient Egypt. And our hero will leap a hundred feet! (Theatrically, not literally.)

 A Princess of Mars is a good old-fashioned pulpy adventure story – fun even for people who aren’t big fans of science fiction. Although the show contains scenes of stylized violence, we consider it suitable for anyone who isn't frightened by actors talking like scary monsters.

Edgar Rice Burroughs introduced readers to Tarzan for the first time in 1912 October issue of All Story Magazine. A classic tale of adventure, Tarzan is a timeless legend and remains one of the most recognized literary characters to this day.

After making his radio debut in 1932, this popular tale of an orphan child raised by apes in the jungle had critics cheering it as, "the most fascinating and colorful radio program they had ever heard." By incorporating both sound and his audience's imagination, Edgar Rice Burroughs was able to take his Tarzan classic to a new level that would capture the fascination of all who listened. 

Enjoy the 18 episodes that marked the beginning of this classic radio epic and be sure to listen for Burroughs' own daughter as Tarzan's love interest Jane.

Frank E. Schoonover Estate Items
ERB fans interested in the art of Frank Schoonover will be interested in some of the following items from the estate of ERB artist Frank E. Schoonover ~ See the Schoonover Bio and Biblio at ERBzine 0422
We received the following letter from the estate representative Al Fryett:

Dear Mr. Hillman:
I have several items from the Schoonover estate that have been consigned to me to sell by Frank E. Schoonover's Grand Daughter.  These items are some of her Grandfather's more personal items and came to her with the passing of her mother Elizabeth Schoonover Cobb. She has chosen to sell them because of health reasons. 

F.E.'s Granddaughter (Mary) and I are very close friends and neighbors of many years, I have been compiling a lot of her personal family memorabilia for her for years, as she finds it. I have sold several pen and inks and other items for her over the years to help pay for her medical treatments.

Most of F.E.'s major works were donated to the Delaware museum and the museum of fine arts here in St. Petersburg Fl by Mary and her Mother, but I still have a large collection of personal items detailing family history, newspaper clippings, photos, letters, Christmas card collection, prints, books, etc.

Al Fryett

LOT 1   16" x 20"  Self Portrait of Frank E. Schoonover unsigned ~ marked on back F.E.S 1966 ~ We believe that this is a self-portrait that he did for his daughter Elizabeth, when he was in his early 80s, as it was always hanging in her home, as far back as granddaughter Mary can remember. 
It is painted in the Schoonover style, as he painted most all of his oils with a pallet knife. After having several conversations with Mary about this, we surmised that by this time in his life he was losing his sight and his hands were starting to shake a bit, and that he was not happy with the result of painting his own aging image, so he did not sign it. We feel, if it was done by one of his many students, or as a commission piece he would have insisted it be signed. If this were true, this would be one of the only self-portraits I know of, as well as one of the last pieces he did in his lifetime. It looks to have been repair at one time on the top about three inches off the right corner and down about three inches.
Asking price: $17,000.00
Lot 2   Frank Schoonover's Christmas card collection spanning 40 years. It was in the F.E. Schoonover tradition that he create his own Christmas cards. This is his personal collection of the cards he created dating back as far as 1919 He saved an unused card for each year, this collection covers 40 years of his life.
Asking price: $4,000.00
Lot 3    This is an original print of the mural  F.E. Schoonover did for the Du Pont’s in thir home in Cuba, in the early 1930s  It measures 16” x 20” and is professionally framed in a 20”x 24” frame, It is signed by Frank E. Schoonover with an inscription to his daughter Elizabeth
Lot 4    A two-piece lot: 
F.E. Schoonover’s Hymnal dated 1940. Signed by FES. Containing notes, names and dates that he made over the years. 
His Engraved Silver Tray Awarded to him by the Immanuel Episcopal Church in recognition of his 41 years of service as Vestryman and Senior Warden dated January 1951.
Lot 5    Three piece lot.
