Tarzan’s loincloth on display during film fest

Tarzan loincloth on display The Silver Springs International Film Festival begins today at the Marion Theatre in Ocala’s downtown, giving attendees an opportunity to see a wide array of films from around the world.

There also will be a piece of movie memorabilia on display that cannot be seen anywhere else but in Ocala — the loincloth worn by Johnny Weissmuller during the filming of “Tarzan Finds a Son” at Silver Springs in 1939.

The loincloth is signed by Weissmuller and the rest of the film’s cast, and it is available for viewing at Gause & Son Jewelers off Ocala’s downtown square.
