The Biography We've Been Waiting For

Tarzan fans set to go ape crazy for memoirs of Cheeta the chimp | the Daily Mail: "It's the latest and probably the last tell-all star autobiography from Hollywood's golden age.

But this memoir is a different species entirely from the normal rags-to-riches tale of a big-screen leading man or woman - it's the life of Cheeta the chimpanzee.

Tarzan's famous co-star, who embarked on his screen career in the 1930s alongside Johnny Weissmuller and Maureen O'Sullivan, is the subject of Me Cheeta, to be published by Fourth Estate in October."

I see my short term memory is even worse than I thought, and it Is in the form of an autobio. And no second H in Cheeta. Ungawa.

I understand in his old age, Cheeta becames mean and nasty. Another young actor destroyed by Hollywood and early fame. And, hey, you damned kids get off of my vine!

Older chimps apparently are much less willing to put up with nonsense. So unlike their cousins. (And some are cannibals, Goodall has found. Ditto.)

I hear he's never been the same since he lost that copyright infringement suit against Cheetos.
