Interesting fact about the Photographer: It was with helping photograph the actors of Tarzan that Curtis took part in new opportunities and met new people. He became a part of the Screenwriter’s Club and soon became friends with directors such as D.W. Griffiths and movies stars such as William S. Hart. (from: Makepeace, Anne. Edward S.
