A.B.C.'s Movie of the Week: The Ivory Ape.
16 August 2005 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

The Ivory Ape (1980) was just another cheesy Sunday Night movie that they used to show on A.B.C. I haven't seen this movie in ages. I remembered watching this movie with my brother and uncle. My brother and I didn't like the ape, But we like Jack Palance. He was a cool and shady hunter who wanted this rare albino ape (a dude in a bad Halloween costume). Some do gooders wanted to save the rare ape. The film was nothing more than a chance for Jack Palance to mug and grimace his way around a bad cast. Typical for these made-for-t.v.-movies. I was back handed by my dear uncle when I made some funny comments about the ugly simian.

Not worth seeking out unless you're a die hard Jack Palance during his "hard living" days (he did a lot of it, you can tell by his looks and mannerisms).
