And the Oscar goes to: Johnny Weissmuller for 'Killer Ape'!
Just kidding. Anyone who's watched a Jungle Jim film--or, for that matter, an MGM Tarzan that isn't Tarzan the Ape Man or Tarzan and his Mate---know that Johnny Weissmuller was probably the worst actor to ever strut his stuff in Hollywood (well, until Keanu Reeves came along). Here he's outacted by a tall gentlemen wearing particularly poor makeup who plays the Killer Ape of the title. He really looks more like a caveman with fluffy boots, but whatever. Once again the natives are all white and there's plenty of stock footage courtesy Sam Katzman's penny-pinching ways.
