    Description

    Love Life of a Gorilla (Jewel Productions, 1937). Jumbo Window Card (22" X 28").
    A scandalous entry from the early Hollywood king of sleaze, Samuel Cummins' torrid tale of gorillas gone mad with lust for jungle women came after the success of the shocking Ingagi and the breakaway blockbuster King Kong. In fact, Cummins' creation primarily featured scenes from Ingagi itself, spliced together with cuts from Angkor, bits of stock footage, and possibly from the film Kidnapping Gorilla. No stranger to clashes with film censorship boards, Cummins eventually passed his exotic exploitation film through National regulations by labeling the picture as "educational" and adding a few strategically placed fake ferns to the native women's extreme case of d├ęcolletage. This colorful Heritage first jumbo window card shows some edge wear with chips and small tears, a light stain in the lower left corner, minor stains in the imprint area, and some printing and paper residue in the title. Fine/Very Fine.
