Rocky Horror: Episode Zero - Tarzan the Ape Man (1932) and Tarzan and His Mate (1934)

Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are working backwards through film history, and in Season 2, they're using THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW as the starting point!  

This week, Bibbs and Witney are indulging in some shirtless hunkiness with TARZAN THE APE MAN (1932) and TARZAN AND HIS MATE (1934), two iconic and influential adventure movies that are half sexual empowerment fantasy, and half colonialist bullsh*t.   

How did the Johnny Weismuller TARZAN movies influence THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW? 

William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are about to find out!
