Audience Member The funniest Anne Bancroft movie ever, LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member This was a fairly mediocre effort! A movie made entirely of someone running around in a Gorilla costume knocking people off! I guess the story just wasn't enough to pull this movie together... The cast was average and the costumes were even more absurd, but I guess there is some fun to be had! It's definitely a comical 50's horror effort, but for the wrong reasons I guess! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Drive in fodder would be completely forgotten if not for its cast. Anne Bancroft, looking sensational in Technicolor, is as good as the script allows as are Raymond Burr and Lee J. Cobb. It's fun to see Lee Marvin just starting out as a clumsy cop. The whole thing is nonsensical but harmless unless you count the mystifying decision to make the usually brunette Cameron Mitchell a bleached blond, it does him no favors. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Holy shit. See this movie now. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member I didn't go into this film expecting to be blown away by a film called Gorilla At Large, but in 3-D I was a little excited. It was fun to see a young Lee Marvin tease a gorilla and Anne Bancroft is just a pleasure to look at, but the 3-D wasn't too impressive. When a Monkey is running a muck at the Santa Monica Pier I want great 3-D and things being thrown at me. I just don't think this film went gimmicky enough and the story wasn't strong enough to hold up. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Very campy 50's movie. Given our modern special effects, the "gorilla" will make you howl but in the 1950's this was probably considered very scary. Love Anne Bancroft's character.
