I'm an avid Ray Harryhausen fan, and this is one of my favorites. Disney remade it some years later, but I still love the stop-motion special effects from this era.

Mighty Joe Young reviews

Great film about an oversize gorilla (about 10-11 feet), its owner (Terry Moore) and what happens when an unscrupulous promoter Max O'Hara (Robert Armstrong) lures them from Africa to America to become a hit. Let's get the bad stuff out of the way--the story is nothing new; Terry Moore and Ben Johnson are among the worst actors I've ever seen and there's zero lack of characterization among the humans. But when Joe Young appears all is forgiven. He looks great, moves realistically and has incredible facial motions. You can tell exactly what he's thinking by his expressions! Also, the scenes where he's grappling with humans, horses, lions look extremely realistic--that's saying a lot for a film that's over 50 years old! A fun family film. Try to see restored prints--there's a final sequence involving a burning building in which the whole reel is tinted red--very nicely done.

Max O'Hara: [to a table of drunks] Listen you guys, cut out the rough stuff or I'll feed you to the lions. The kid's cigarettes will be on your check. Enjoy yourselves... gentlemen.
Windy: Who do you think's gonna get the worst of this - Maxie, or Africa?
Crawford: [amidst animal growls] It can't be; we're a hundred miles from that country - but it is, I swear it is! Ali, get me my gun - *big* gun!
Crawford: You can't rope a gorilla!
Jill Young: [after O'Hara and Crawford have fled] Aren't you afraid of Joe?
