THE MIGHTY GORGA
directed by David L. Hewitt
USA / 1969 / 84 mins / English
A circus owner and a lady trapper trek into the African jungle to capture a giant gorilla for his circus.
THE MIGHTY GORGA was produced independently on a small budget. So small, in fact, that there's an actual fight scene between Gorga and a hand-puppet dinosaur! It was produced, directed and written by David L. Hewitt, who also played the titular gorilla, albeit uncredited. Hewitt had previously directed a number of B-Movies such as THE WIZARD OF MARS, JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF TIME and DR. TERROR'S GALLERY OF HORRORS and would go on to be a special effects creator for films such as SHOCKER, HONEY, I SHRUNK THE KIDS and SUPERMAN IV: THE QUEST FOR PEACE.
Come join us for GOING BANANAS where every Sunday in August, we screen a King Kong knock-off film from the '60s and '70s. Tickets are just $6 and come with a FREE small popcorn and drink.
