From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia
Gordon Scott (with Rickie Sorenson) in Tarzan and the Trappers (1958)

Gordon Scott was an American actor best known for his portrayal of Tarzan in the 1950s. Born Gordon M. Werschkul on August 3, 1927 in Portland, Oregon, Gordon Scott was raised in Oregon and attended the University of Oregon for a period. Upon leaving school he went into the service and was honorably discharged in the later 1940s. He then worked at a variety of jobs until 1953, when he was spotted by a talent agent while working as a lifeguard at the Las Vegas Sahara Hotel. Due in part to his muscular frame and 6'3" height, he was quickly signed to replace Lex Barker as Tarzan. Source, Brian's Drive-In Theater
