"Gorilla at Large"
Monkeyshines! week begins at Trailers from Hell with director John Landis introducing "Gorilla at Large," notable as one of three 3-D productions  released by Twentieth Century Fox in the 1950s, and the only film of its kind where objects are thrown away from the camera.

Talk about descriptive titles! This generic little indie is set in a Long Beach amusement park terrorized by an escaped gorilla. It benefits from an unusually good cast including Oscar nominee Lee J. Cobb (the same year he made On the Waterfront!) and contract player Anne Bancroft, who probably didn't include this one on her resume. George Barrows fills out the ape suit a year after playing the diving helmet-headed gorilla in "Robot Monster."
