Is this man wearing a fez?Posted: April 13, 2008
This still is from the 1932 film classic, Tarzan the Ape Man. The actor getting squished by the giant ape was not credited as far as I can tell. The only lines he had were, “Paysay! Paysay!” and “Aaaaiiieeeee!” His last as it turned out.
The headgear does seem to have the shape of a fez but then, that could have been the result of getting ape-handled. A couple of times I was sure I saw a tassel but couldn’t find a still that showed it. I pulled a three minute clip from the film that you might enjoy.
