This is a fact based story about a socialite and her husband who live in a mansion with a brood of animals including chimpanzees who are raised as her children. When she discovers an ailing baby gorilla, she decides to care for it as well. Years later, the gorilla is fully grown and its strength is sometimes out of control. However, the gorilla shows love for his mistress and obeys her commands. That all changes when she is invited to display the gorilla and chimps at the Chicago World's Fair. Accidentally freed by one of the chimps, the gorilla terrorizes the Fair. From that point on, he becomes moody and more uncontrollable until he attacks his mistress in a bestial rage. Written by

I got the DVD of this movie in a cereal box years ago when I was a little kid. I have loved this movie ever since and have watched it time and time again. This movie was amazing especially for animal lovers. I believe it's very under appreciated. It was sweet and brought tears to my eyes. But you probably do have to be an animal lover to fully like this movie. I wish this movie would go into theaters although it has already been out on DVD for awhile. I wish more attention was brought to this movie because I think it could've done decently well. I wish to show this to my children one day. It's a good movie for kids although maybe a few of the scenes could be a tad frightening. Buddy is a lovable character and this is a great movie.
