Me Tarzan, Me Like Disneyland
Many famous people have visited Disneyland since it opened. With the proximity to Hollywood, many of them have been stars of movies and television. These two shots are of Gordon Scott who was Tarzan of the late 1950s and Vera Miles his wife at the time. Vera had a thriving film career of her own and Gordon and her met on the set of a Tarzan film. I like that the photographers placed them in Adventureland the natural setting for Tarzan. The image of them in the Jungle Cruise is great for the detail of the elephant wall in the temple scene. And of course who does not like a merchandise shot with funky earrings in the back (on a Disneyland card), straw hats of different shapes, rubber spears and leis. In Vera's hand she is holding a Disneyland Admittance ticket. Now days such stars would be surrounded by security and not posing for photographs but hiding from the stalkerazzi.
