Broadcast on network television in the early 1980s with a special promotion from 7/11 convenience stores offering cardboard 3D glasses -- the glasses themselves featured a Scratch-And-Sniff patch that smelled like bananas. Right before the movie started, a host would instruct people at home to adjust the color and contrast settings on their TVs to enhance the 3D effect. The broadcast itself was generally considered a failure because the 3D effect didn't work very well depending on the quality of picture from individual TV manufacturers. See more »

I had heard about "Gorilla at Large" for years, but avoided watching it because of the campy title and brief clips I had seen, usually of the gorilla swinging on a vine. Recently, this movie was broadcast on Fox Movie Channel. On a whim, I recorded it with my PVR and watched it the next day. To my surprise, I found "Gorilla at Large" to be an entertaining movie. It's not a monster film at all, or even a jungle themed movie. Rather, it's a crime/detective story that keeps you guessing. "Gorilla" has a very good cast and interesting story. A young Lee Marvin has an amusing role as a policeman. The sexy Anne Bancroft is the main star....although some might claim it is the gorilla.
