Mighty Joe Young

Original Theatrical Date: July 26, 1949

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.
