STARK MAD (1929)

ORIGINALLY POSTED 7-7-2008
Theatre Slide and printed photo added.

Expect future posts highlighting images from both my online galleries and my hard drive. Rather than force the casual visitor to sift through a glut of gorilla images I thought that a regular post featuring some of my favourite suits and images would be fun for all.

First up - STARK MAD (1929) - a lost film with a striking suit that is unidentified. The plot is typical enough for a 20's/30's flick with an ape; An expedition sets out through the jungle to find a missing explorer, but stumbles upon an ancient Mayan temple that houses a giant ape. (from IMDB). I have only seen a handful of images and stills have been relatively costly on EBay.
