Escape with the Ape Man

On April 28, 1945, Adolph Hitler and Eva Braun wed beneath Berlin's ruins. In Hollywood RKO released Tarzan and the Amazons, a silly tale of Tarzan and a race of jungle beauties. The film, Johnny Weissmuller's ninth appearance of the ape man, also starred Jane (Brenda Joyce), returning from England where she was doing war-related work, Boy and, of course, Cheetah the chimp. It's an example of the escapist fare Hollywood churned out in good times and bad, in war and the fast-approaching peace.
