    For the first time, the granddaddy of all hollywood animals tells his remarkable story, from the golden age of the silver screen to the lounge chairs of palm springs. cheeta the chimp, star of the tarzan films, bares all-as only a primate can.In 1984 Johnny Weissmuller, Hollywood's true Tarzan, passed away. His coffin was lowered into the ground to the recorded sounds of his famous jungle call. Maureen O'Sullivan, his Jane, followed him in 1998. But their co-star, Cheeta the chimpanzee, the greatest animal actor in the history of the silver screen, lives on. At seventy-six, he is by some distance the oldest chimp ever recorded.Now, in his own words, Cheeta finally tells his extra-ordinary story.Plucked from millions of swinging hopefuls in the jungles of Liberia, Cheeta became an international screen icon from the moment of his debut in 1934's Tarzan and His Mate. He went on to star in a further nine Tarzan pictures and later in Doctor Dolittle, with the supercilious Rex Harrison, until finally his battles with substance abuse forced him into early retirement. But back in the day, this magnificent star cavorted (and occasionally snorted) with all the Hollywood greats.We are privileged, indeed, that such a legendary entertainer should grant us intimate access to the lives of the most glittering stars. Well aware that no animal has ever been successfully sued for libel, Cheeta shares fascinating revelations about a lost Hollywood. Funny, moving, and searingly honest, this is unques-tionably the greatest celebrity autobiography of our time.

    Cheeta starred alongside Johnny Weissmuller in the Tarzan movies of the 30s and went on to have a long and successful career in the movies until retiring in 1967. He now lives in the C.H.E.E.T.A. Primate Foundation in Palm Springs, California, where he is looked after by his carer Dan Westfall. At 75 years old, he holds the record as the World�s Oldest Chimpanzee.
