Clyde Beatty as himself



Part four
Frank Buck, as himself sets a trap for the giant gorilla. Frank had a zoo in NY and was a self-proclaimed lion tamer - but really he was more of a promoter. Part four has an excellent scene with Stanley fighting lions - till he gets in trouble and has to be save by Clyde Beatty. Will Stanley and Johnson be left in the jungle to roast in a kettle - or will they be eaten by lions? and what about Diana Emerson - will she get away with her diamonds? BTW - Hillary Brooke played Lou's girlfriend on the Abbot and Costello TV show (1952). Shemp and Joe were both Stooges. In June 1935 - Max Baer won the crown for the heavyweight champion of the world.
