If you're a fan of Buster Crabbe (Flash Gordon) or Julie London (sultry singing superstar), you'll love this movie.

And if you're aware of the fact that many movies which featured men in gorilla suits made good use of the personal talents (and the personal gorilla suit) of Ray "Crash" Corrigan, you'll like it even more.

The plot involves the efforts of Buster Crabbe to exonerate his late father (a banker) from charges of embezzlement. Buster goes on safari to find the missing money and the wreckage of the plane crash which killed his father.

He meets a "White Witch" who turns out to be the daughter of the embezzler (now dead). But the daughter (played by the lovely Julie London in her film debut) won't give up the money, and she is guarded by a loyal ape played by (you guessed it) Ray Corrigan.

Directed by Sam Newfield from a story and script by Fred Myton on a modest budget which was put to good use.

Youtube offers a fairly watchable version of this jungle advenure with Buster Crabbe. There are actually three versions, but this one seems slightly better than the others.

Take a look. Very Happy
