Tarzan of the Apes Is a Mastodonic Monopoly -- March 23, 2018

Moving Picture World, 09-March-1918

"7 people out of 8 in your city have read the story and await the film."

Moving Picture World, 23-March-1918

"Rights to Orient, Japan, Australia and South America have been disposed of."  "Disposed of"?

Moving Picture World, 23-March-1918
 "First National reports that eighty prints will be necessary."

Moving Picture World, 30-March-1918
"'Tarzan of the Apes' is a mastodonic monopoly embracing all that the mind of man can possibly conceive, suggest or imagine." 

Moving Picture World, 30-March-1918
I think the story implies that this is Broadway in Manhattan, but it doesn't look wide enough to me.
