Black & White

Initially a student of engineering, Allan Dwan gravitated to film making and placed an indelible stamp of genius there. The pioneer of the ‘dolly’shot made some groundbreaking movies in his time (A Girl of Yesterday, Robin Hood, The Iron Mask) , including a series of memorable Westerns. In The Gorilla, he merged his directorial talents with the comic genius of the famous Ritz Brothers. The result? A timeless, classic feature film that brilliantly combines elements of suspense and intrigue with side-splitting comedy. Horror maestro Bela Lugosi in an unusual role manages to come across as sinister and intensely funny at the same time!

The Westchester Globe cries ‘murder’. The perpetrator is thought to be either a berserk gorilla, origin unknown, or someone disguised up as one. When rich financier Walter Stevens (Lionel Atwill) receives an unequivocal threat from the murderer, all hell breaks loose. His highly strung maid Kitty (Patsy Kelly) serves immediate notice, but too late... the game is afoot. Enter Stevens’ beautiful niece Norma Denby (Anita Louise) and her intended husband Jack, as well as the bumbling detective trio Garrity, Harrigan and Mulligan the (Ritz Brothers) . The butler Peters looms ominously over the fracas as the buffoonish investigators tag one suspect after the other. To keep the suspense on constant trigger point, the murderer periodically announces imminent bloodshed over a rigged radio.

Who is the murderer, and who are the mysterious characters that pop up from one hilarious scene to the other? Find out in this vintage movie classic from A2ZCDS.com - now on DVD for your viewing convenience.

"The Gorilla was a genre mélange from Allan Dwan, in which he teamed up the sinister genius of Bela Lugosi with the riotous humor of the three Ritz Brothers. In the best tradition of vintage whodunit, the entire action takes place within a sprawling mansion that is riddled with secret panels and shifting shadows. Inspired direction and camerawork ensures that the viewer is torn between uncontrollable laughter and nail-biting suspense. Bela Lugosi underplays his part of the enigmatic butler with accomplished panache, and the script is peppered with hysterically funny one-liners and comebacks from the clueless detective trio and the maid Kitty. This wonderful feature film is a vintage masterpiece that has not lost its appeal since its release in the last century.

A2ZCDS.com brings you The Gorilla, a deliciously funny feature film by avant garde director Allan Dwan. This 1939 classic switches between rollicking comedy by the inimitable Ritz brothers and true elements of mystery and suspense. A timeless movie experience now issued in unblemished DVD format by A2ZCDS.com!"


"I could literally have died laughing. I know that’s a worn cliché, but I can’t think of a better way to describe The Gorilla. At first, I thought that Bela Lugosi was miscast in his role - but he’s as funny in this one as he’s macabre in his other films. This movie is an all-inclusive package and there’s only one single genre I would put it under - Pure Genius! A2ZCDS.com has done it again. In spades."
Customer's Name : Jeremy Feldman, real estate consultant (Stillwater, OKLAHOMA)

"This film is a masterful distillation of good, old slapstick humor and mystery. I could sense from the start that I was not supposed to take it too seriously - but I must still say that this is serious moviemaking at its funniest. The Ritz Brothers outdo the Three Stooges in The Gorilla, and Bela Lugosi have an inspired offbeat performance. I recommend this timeless film for stormy days and rainy nights..."
Customer's Name : Kelsey Warwick local film reviewer (Green Bay, WISONSIN)
