When a wealthy man (Atwill) is threatened by a killer known as The Gorilla, he hires the Ritz Brothers to investigate. A real escaped gorilla shows up at the mansion just as the investigators arrive. Written by

A good-natured 1939 horror comedy that can be watched today for 65 minutes of easy, painless entertainment. The plot is just convoluted nonsense, and the Ritz Brothers seem to be working with erratic material (at times their humor becomes almost surrealistic, often it's purely childish), but the film is pleasant enough and has some good lines and interesting situations.
