Original Theatrical Date:

After a slick nightclub owner discovers the giant ape frolicking in Africa as the beloved pet of a young girl, he brings both to Hollywood as a floor-show sensation, until some no-goods ply Joe with booze and the blitzed behemoth goes bonkers. Highlights such as henchmen trying to lasso Joe cowpoke style, Joe playing tug-of-war with musclemen and plenty of Joe-to-the-rescue action make "Mighty Joe Young" mighty fine entertainment.
