    They filmed the Weissmueller Tarzans here?

    @neufotomacher I think stock footage shot at the lagoon at the LA Arboretum was used by RKO for Johnny Weissmuller Tarzan Movies and other things like "Bomba the Jungle Boy" in the 1940's and 1950's.

    @herbert-4 Ah, Bomba the jungle boy. I know I've seen at least one movie of him. I remember that movie reference best of all from Get Smart: Would you believe, General McCluskey and a hundred of his crack paratroopers . . . J.Edgar Hoover and 10 of his G-men . . . Tarzan and a couple of his apes . . . Bomba the Jungle boy.
