Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes, Clapperboard

original production material

A production used small clapperboard from the Christopher Lambert 1983 adventure drama Greystoke the Legend of Tarzan: Lord of the Apes. One of the most iconic and memorable aspects of the movie making industry has to be the clapperboard. For decades this has been a vital piece of equipment that enables not just sound and image to be synchronised, but to also advise the viewer of the raw footage the exact details of the upcoming shot. The simple monochromatic device has become a symbolic image synonymous with films, and is still used to this day.

The black clapperboard has the films title painted on in green and grey with the director (Hugh Hudson), cameraman (John Alcott) “slate” and “take” permanently painted on in white with big open space for the information to fill the boxes. Across the bottom is a strip of white gaffa tape with this particular clapper's final date of filming still written in black pen – April 14th 1983. The clapstick is a little wobbly and has obviously seen a lot of use during production with wear and age evident all across the piece, but is in otherwise good and sound condition. Coa Prop Store
