    (February 6, 1889-June 27, 1952)
    Birth name was Otto Elmo Linkenfelt
    First actor to portray Tarzan on film
    Acted in 'Birth of a Nation (1915),' 'Tarzan of the Apes (1918),' 'The Romance of Tarzan (1918),' and 'The Adventures of Tarzan (1921)'
    His acting was vile and he had a potbelly.
    He was also known as Lincoln Helt, Otto Lincoln, Oscar Linkenhelt and Otto Linkenhelt.
    In his 'Tarzan' movies, he wore a big, ugly curly wig complete with a animal print headband.
    Edgar Rice Burroughs was horrified that anyone would want him to portray Tarzan.
    Burroughs would not allow another Tarzan movie to be made for five years until he could find a more suitable actor.
    One of his first roles was as an extra in the white supremacist-friendly 'Birth of a Nation.'
    He lost most of his money in bad investments.
    As a youth, he was a prankster with a good sense of humor.
    He was a former peace officer.
    His chest measured an impressive sixty-three inches.
    He was relegated to playing bit parts in B-movies after his 'Tarzan' success faded.
    He briefly left movie-making to go into business for himself.
    His first 'Tarzan' movie was the first film to gross over a million dollars.
