Synopsis:
Jill Young (Terry Moore) has brought up Joe, her pet gorilla, since she was a child in Tanzania, Africa, but when the gorilla becomes fully grown its strength is incredible. Hollywood promoter Max O'Hara (Robert Armstrong) convinces Jill to bring her extraordinary gorilla back to America to star in his nightclub floorshow with Jill as the Jungle Queen commanding the Mighty Joe Young. The opening night is a resounding success, but as Joe becomes more exploited, the novelty soon wears off for the caged animal and his loving owner. As Joe rests in his basement cage, a group of drunks torment him with alcohol and cigarettes until Joe bursts from his shackles and goes on a destructive rampage...

not bad - Mighty Joe Young review by gazmb

Spoiler Alert
16/07/2014

I rented this film for my partners mum to watch she said it was better than the origional. It is a very good film considering how old it is, it's in black and white and old special effects but still good story and not bad effects.
