Mighty Joe Young

Mighty Joe Young

After being taken from his home in Africa, Gorilla “Joe” is an instant hit in a Hollywood nightclub. This fun and wonderfully entertaining slant on “King Kong” is much better than Kong’s 1934 sequel, “Son of Kong”. This all ages adventure has superb special effects from Willis O’Brien and his protege, Ray Harryhausen.
