Sadly, I must report the passing at the ripe old age of 80 of one of the great movie stars from Hollywood's golden era

That's right, Cheetah the chimp, who co-starred with Johnny Weissmuller and Maureen O'Sullivan in such classics as "Tarzan the Ape Man" (1932) and "Tarzan and His Mate" (1934), has left us.  They say one of his favorite pastimes was to watch football.  Yet another reason to mourn his passing.  Rest in peace, Cheetah.
