Audience Reviews for Gorilla at Large
Drive in fodder would be completely forgotten if not for its cast. Anne Bancroft, looking sensational in Technicolor, is as good as the script allows as are Raymond Burr and Lee J. Cobb. It's fun to see Lee Marvin just starting out as a clumsy cop. The whole thing is nonsensical but harmless unless you count the mystifying decision to make the usually brunette Cameron Mitchell a bleached blond, it does him no favors.
I didn't go into this film expecting to be blown away by a film called Gorilla At Large, but in 3-D I was a little excited. It was fun to see a young Lee Marvin tease a gorilla and Anne Bancroft is just a pleasure to look at, but the 3-D wasn't too impressive. When a Monkey is running a muck at the Santa Monica Pier I want great 3-D and things being thrown at me. I just don't think this film went gimmicky enough and the story wasn't strong enough to hold up.
