Description

“Johnny Weismuller was special and always treated me as his ‘Boy’”

ALS, one page, 8.5 x 11, no date. Sheffield writes to "Heah Mike & Family." In part: "Working with my jungle family was routine and lots of fun. I like Tarzan's N.Y. Adventure and the animals were special to me. Johnny Weismuller [sic] was special and always treated me as his 'Boy.' I saw Maureen [O'Sullivan] last year in Hollywood…." After signing, Sheffield adds "Cheetah," "Bolie," "Otto," "Simba," and "Bomba," explaining in a postscript on the reverse that "I sign for some of my friends who are unable to sign for themselves." Includes a glossy 10 x 8 photo of Weissmuller and Sheffield together in a scene, signed in black felt tip, "Johnny Sheffield, 'Boy.'" In fine condition.
