Past Event Double Feature: Andy Warhol’s Tarzan & Jane Regained… Sort Of (1963) and Tarzan the Ape Man (1932) at Ace Hotel

A black-and-white film still of two shirtless men wearing material resembling loincloths below the waist. The man in the left has both arms raised, elbows bent at 90 degrees, flexing to show bicep muscles; his mouth is open. The man on the right is looking away from him, smiling, his arms hanging in front of him, left hand grabbing right wrist.

The Warhol and Ace Hotel Pittsburgh present a double feature film screening of Andy Warhol’s Tarzan & Jane Regained… Sort Of (1963) and Tarzan the Ape Man (1932) in the Ace Hotel gym. Many of Warhol’s 1960s films reflect the influence of movies he watched in Oakland cinemas when he was a child in 1930s Pittsburgh. Tarzan and Jane Regained… Sort Of, one of his earliest films, is a Warholian take on jungle adventure films and features Superstar Taylor Mead and Naomi Levine and Dennis Hopper as the title characters in a romp around Hollywood. This film is paired with the classic Tarzan the Ape Man (1932) starring Olympic swimmer Johnny Weismuller, whose life-size portrait Warhol kept in his collection.
