Now that's a tagline!
BRIDE OF THE GORILLA (1951) is favourite of mine. Yes, it has a plot that is heavily cribbed from Universal's WOLFMAN (Curt Siodmak wrote both) but Raymond Burr drags the film out of the ditch with his smoldering performance. Lon Chaney JR phones in his performance as the local South American lawman but at this juncture in his career, the defeated and beaten down schtick rings pretty damn true. I wonder how ecstatic he was to shill this B movie at the local New Jersey theatre pictured below.
