The Ape Man


  1. The Ape is pissed because Bela won't share his stash.
    Emil van Horn who's enormous dramatic range allowed him to play parts like:
    Gorilla Man (uncredited)
    1947 The Vigilante:
    Gorilla [Chs. 3, 5, 6] (uncredited)
    1943 Sleepy Lagoon
    Gorilla (uncredited)
    1943 The Ape Man
    The Ape
    1942 Ice-Capades Revue
    Gorilla (uncredited)
    1942 Perils of Nyoka
    Satan the Ape [Chs.1,4,7,15] (uncredited)
    1942 Law of the Jungle
    Gorilla (uncredited)
    1941 Keep 'Em Flying
    Man in Gorilla Costume (uncredited)
    1941 Never Give a Sucker an Even Break
    Gargo the Gorilla (uncredited)
    1966 Nyoka and the Lost Secrets of Hippocrates (TV movie)
    Satan (the ape) (uncredited)
    If you owned an Ape suit you got to work in Moving Pictures.

  2. Wow - he really made a career from investing in that gorilla suit.
    Why wouldn't the producers give him a credit? Were they hoping the audience would think it was a real gorilla?
    I hope Mr. van Horn didn't get paid in bananas.
