A short movie entitled "White Gorilla", made for 8mm and 16mm home release in the 1950s and available on the Something Weird DVD release of "Night of the Bloody Apes"/"Feast of Flesh" was not condensed from this film as some have suggested. It was actually reedited from the feature "White Gorilla" which was also made in 1945. See more »
As low budget jungle movies go this one isn't that bad. The production values are reasonable and the acting is perfectly ok. The script and storyline just aren't up to much and the whole film drags badly in the middle section. Not that there's much of a climax either - they just don't seem to know how to use the white gorilla effectively. Of course he steals the girl - they always do. As far as the gorilla costumes etc are concerned believe me they are nowhere near the worst you will ever see in films of this vintage. Enjoyable fun and a decent print on the alpha DVD I saw.
