Johnny Weissmuller - As a boy of 11 in Blackpool England, I went to see Johnny Weissmuller who was appearing at a swimming show at Derby Baths. At this time, Johnny Weissmuller was THE Tarzan and I had seen most of his movies. When he got out of the water after his swimming demonstration in which he had used hand flippers as well as foot flippers, I jumped over the security fence around the pool and raced up to him and asked for his autograph. I didn't get it but he spoke to me and said, "Gee kid, I'm all wet, I'm sorry" At this point, a rather overweight security guard caught up with me and escorted me back to my seat. Just seeing and speaking with Tarzan was amazing for a kid of my age.
