First off I think the movie BRIDE OF THE GORILLA is a hoot. The book is a hoot and a half as everything you could ever want to know about this film is dragged kicking and screaming into the light. Back stage sex romps, fist fights and potted plant jungle fun are just some of the highlights of this book/5(12). Barney the foreman, beguiled by Van Gelders beautiful young wife Dina, pushed his employer into the afterlife, took Dina as his bride and made himself master of Van Gelder Manor. But a witch-like servant gives him a dose of jungle justice: She places a curse on On a South American rubber plantation stands the home of Klaas Van Gelder—a house whose claim to fame is murder.4/5(3). Barney the foreman, beguiled by Van Gelder's beautiful young wife Dina, pushed his employer into the afterlife, took Dina as his bride and made himself master of Van Gelder Manor. But a witch-like servant gives him a dose of jungle justice: She places a curse on him so that he transforms by night into the deadliest of jungle demons, the : BearManor Media. The premise of Bride of the Gorilla is so goofy that one approaches it expecting a campy laugh-fest -- and why not? It's hard to pinpoint why exactly, but a man turning into a wolf is by nature an intriguing and interesting idea, while a man turning into a gorilla is by nature simply : American Pop Classic.

Shortly afterward, he is plagued by a strange voodoo curse which transforms him into a gorilla/10(1K). The definitive word on "Bride of the Gorilla", a film that no one seems to admire (even Weaver doesn't particularly like it) but that a lot of people have affection for. This book includes the script, an in depth look at the making of the film, and some fascinating bits like an account of the final days of Curt Siodmak and the music, and a chronology of Lon Chaney Jr's life/5(11).
Illicit lust, voodoo and a South American werebeast. (Okay, so it's a guy in a gorilla suit.) Stars uber-blonde Barbara Payton and Raymond Burr, supported by Lon Chaney and Tom Conway Directed by Curt Siodmak Released in a.k.a. "The Face in the Water". Bride of the Gorilla starts out with promise, but soon gets mired in too much melodrama for my tastes. The story goes an older plantation owner dies through the actions of one of his hired hands, Barney Chavez (Raymond Burr), as the hired hand covets the man's younger wife, Dina (Barbara Peyton). item 5 Bride of the Gorilla (hardback) by Tom Weaver (English) Hardcover Book Free Ship - Bride of the Gorilla (hardback) by Tom Weaver (English) Hardcover Book Free Ship. $ Free shipping.
