The Gorilla and the Jungle Goddess
What do these people have in common: game show host Alex Trebek, comedian Howie Mandel, actors Lorenzo Lamas and David Cassidy, and television host Joan Lunden? When they were youngsters, their favorite singer and television personality was Julie London, female star of this motion picture.
When she filmed this jungle adventure Julie was eighteen years old. She met Dragnet actor/producer Jack Webb when she was sixteen, going with him on dates to local jazz clubs. Julie would later marry Jack Webb and have two children before they divorced. Julie and Jack Webb remained friendly even after she married singer and songwriter Bobby Troup, who was most famous for writing the song ‘Route 66’ and for getting wife Julie started on a singing career. She was the most popular female singer in 1955, 1956 and 1957, often singing her theme song, ‘Cry Me a River’ about her love and loss of love from Jack Webb.
This movie is Julie London’s first screen appearance, and she is a jungle goddess raised by a giant gorilla after crashing in the jungle with her jewel-thief father when she was a young girl. Olympic swimming champion Buster Crabbe is the son of the fellow that got blamed for losing the money and jewels, and he is searching the jungle for the jewels when he discovers a fully grown and very seductive lady and her gorilla protector. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
