Watching THE MONSTER AND THE APE has me all fired up about robots and apes and wouldn't ya know? - it was not the first joining of the two. Years prior to the serial, Walt Disney had Mickey Mouse create a Mechanical Man to battle a ferocious ape, the Kongo Killer. The wild gorilla is something to behold and the sound design for the creature is downright blood curdling. Who shall triumph in this titanic tussle of machine vs muscle? My money is on Mickey!
