    (May 19, 1906-February 24, 2007)
    Birth name is Herman Brix
    Won a silver medal for shot-putting at the 1928 Olympics
    Best known as Tarzan in ‘The New Adventures of Tarzan (1935)’ and ‘Tarzan and the Green Goddess (1938)’

    He was the first choice to play Tarzan in ‘Tarzan and His Mate,’ but declined because of an injury (Johnny Weissmuller took the role instead).
    His Tarzan never achieved the popularity of Weissmuller’s.
    He was often stuck in B-grade westerns and crime dramas.
    He changed his name from ‘Herman Brix’ to ‘Bruce Bennett’ to prevent being typecast as Tarzan.
    He did his own stunts.
    He served in World War II.
    He was handpicked to play Tarzan by the character’s creator, Edgar Rice Burroughs.
    His Tarzan portrayal was probably closer to Burroughs’ original character than any other.
    He was married to the same woman for 67 years until her death (2000).
