A white gorilla is snubbed by black gorillas because he is the wrong color. Cut off from his tribe he becomes lonely and angry. After troubling hunters and natives, the white gorilla fights the king of the black gorillas while we are told by a narrator that the fate of Africa hangs in the balance. The movie was made by editing some 1947 acting into footage from a 1927 silent serial, Perils of the Jungle, starring Frank Merrill the fifth screen Tarzan. Written by Ed Stephan <>

Two movies (and two gorillas) for the price of one!
24 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

Fascinatingly awful, this composite of Ray Corrigan (as the gorilla) waylaying Ray Corrigan (as the hero), interspersed with an extraordinary amount of cheesily acted old serial footage, has to be seen to be believed. Sad to say, the hero of the serial is Frank Merrill, a champion gymnast who was still a household name when I was growing up. Mind you, the chubby little jungle boy, riding on the trunk of a real elephant, does a creditable turn, but the rest of the serial players, especially including hero Merrill, heroine Gilbert and heavy Belmour (or Belmore) are strictly from hunger, enacting in a weirdly exaggerated style that went out of fashion around 1910. On the other hand, the animal footage of snapping lions would be still tolerably exciting, but it's ruined by poor presentation at the wrong speed.

As for the talkative framing story of the white gorilla, it will enthrall only Mr Corrigan's keenest fans. Production values can only be described as Poverty Row minus. It's sad to see Francis Ford, Lorraine Miller and an unflatteringly photographed Charles King mixed up, however briefly, in this charade.
