Trivia

Other than the actors in the Gorilla costumes, almost every ape seen here appears in "stock footage," film originally shot for other movies and licensed for use in this film to save production costs. See more »

Goofs

They dress as Gorillas to blend in. If there are other Gorillas around they will tear them limb from limb. If there a not then they will be conspicuous and Jungle Jim would have all the local scientists investigating where the hell the Gorillas came from. See more »

Gorillas in the field
26 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

There are good reasons why I watched the Weissmuller Tarzan films as a kid and not the Jungle Jim films. The television stations were too embarrassed to show them.

This film starts with stock footage of wild animals from Africa and Asia, I guess at the time most people did not notice the difference. Jungle Jim investigates Gorilla attacks in an area where there should be not gorillas and although these gorillas look like men dressed up in a gorilla costume, it is because they are men dressed up as gorillas and trying to frighten other humans.

The reasons being that some dastardly Nazis are trying to retrieve some Nazi gold hidden during the war.

Weissmuller looked old and flabby, the plot is flimsy and silly. Even as b film this is just bad.
