Critic Reviews for The Gorilla
A short and sweet horror comedy that garners a few laughs, and some fun horror tropes.
Audience Reviews for The Gorilla
A wealthy man hires three cowardly detectives (the Ritz Brothers) to protect him from a killer known as the Gorilla (who may be an actual gorilla). The Ritz Brothers are a second-rate comedy team, but this old dark house comedy is light and busy enough to provide some small entertainment.More
This film was far more then I expected. From the Sons of Kong 10 Movie Collection, Here I thought it would be another Jungle movie filmed before 1940 a copy cat of the so many others in that time frame. I was so wrong, what you have here is a Mystery / Comedy. Its enjoyable to say the least. There is a 3 man comedy team in this one that is right up there with the three stooges, just very surprised I never saw more of these three. There are people being murdered in the city and the blame seems to fall on a gorilla, but is he really the one. 4 Stars for this one, quite high for a film from 1939More
