Weird Vintage Untitled Document

Baseball great Lou Gehrig had ambitions to be in the movies.  He set his sights on playing Tarzan, auditioning for the role and posing for some publicity photos.  Edgar Rice Burroughs was not impressed.  He sent Gehrig a telegram saying, "Having seen several pictures of you as Tarzan…I want to congratulate you on being a swell first baseman", 1936 (via Vintage Photo LJ)
