An Original Vintage Theatrical 8" x 10" [20 x 25 cm] Movie Still (Learn More)

The Gorilla, the 1939 Allan Dwan detective mystery horror screwball comedy ("Based on the play by Ralph Spence"; about a wealthy man who is being threatened by a criminal known as "The Gorilla", and he hires three detectives to investigate, and things get really complicated when a real escaped gorilla shows up on the premises) starring The Ritz Brothers (Jimmy Ritz, Harry Ritz, and Al Ritz), Anita Louise, Patsy Kelly, Lionel Atwill, Bela Lugosi, Joseph Calleia, Edward Norris, Wally Vernon, and Art Miles (in the title role as the gorilla; he played a few gorillas over the years, which was only slightly better than the rest of his career, which was almost all uncredited roles). Note that poor Bela Lugosi's star had fallen quite a bit since his rise to fame in 1931 in Dracula. The same year this movie was made, he had a great role as Ygor in "Son of Frankenstein", but in this movie (made for 20th Century-Fox), he was seventh billed!

Condition: good. There are several pairs of staple holes around the edges of the still with some tattering and paper loss from rough removal. There are smudges, scuffs, and minor creases throughout the still (more so around the edges).
