Storyline

A ship carrying a touring circus troupe sinks at sea, and Lorraine, a young girl, is washed up on a deserted island. Her only companion is a gorilla from the circus, Bimi, who raises her as its own. Several years later Lorraine's wealthy grandfather, who has hired a psychic to help find her, is led by the psychic to Lorraine's island, and she and Bimi are taken back to "civiliation" in San Francisco, but things don't work out exactly as planned.

Patsy Ruth Miller Goes Wild
13 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Odd mix of adventure, the occult, and broad comedy make for unsure viewing. Patsy Ruth Miller stars as the heiress who is shipwrecked as a child while traveling with her parents and a circus. The child and many animals wash up on a jungle island where she grows to adulthood.

Meanwhile, he rich grandfather in San Francisco spends 12 years seeking news from a bunch of phony mediums about the fate of his granddaughter, until one day he meets a fellow occultist (Norman Kerry) who is able to break through the spirit world and find out where Lorraine is.

Meanwhile, the old man's distant relative and his shady lawyer are trying to bilk the old man and keep him from finding the proper heir so they can collect the estate.

They all set off in the old man's yacht and find the wild child, who is protected from harm by a loyal gorilla (Fred Humes). Kerry and Miller hit it off right away, and they all sail back to San Francisco with the gorilla.

The granddaughter is introduced to society but the gorilla goes berserk and causes pandemonium amongst the refined types.

Patsy Ruth Miller and Norman Kerry are wasted in cardboard roles, and the production values are pretty cheap. Fred Humes plays the gorilla and would soon embark on a minor career as a cowboy star at Universal.
