Tarzan, the Ape Man was a 1981 film starring Miles O'Keefe and Bo Derek. O'Keefe was the stand in for another actor who became injured on the set and so took over the role. Bo Derek, model and husband of director John Derek, had had a big success with surprise leading man Dudley Moore (Peter Cook his one time comedy partner was very jealous of this) in the film 10. Tarzan was not a success.

This very large card, shown front and back, was issued by Playboy magazine to promote the September 1981 issue, presumably an in depth interview. the card features an invented stamp for French West Africa.

Curious that they didn't make the stamp in the French language!

Slight blunder by the producers there!

After 40 years, the stamp fell off! I had to stick it back on 😀
