SYNOPSIS: A giant ape is reputed to live deep in the darkest jungles of the Himalayas. Our hero succeeds in finding the beast, but also discovers that it's been raising a young woman since her parents were killed in a plane crash. The adventurer and the woman fall in love with each other, and he convinces her to take the ape back to Hong Kong along with him. In Hong Kong, the ape is mistreated, its jealousy gets the best of it, and there's only one way the film can end. Badly.
The Giant Ape Sneaks Up
Our hero is out looking for the giant ape. Clearly he isn't looking hard enough, as it successfully sneaks up on him.

Oh no, a tiger! People scatter, including one guy who chooses to hide from the tiger in a bed of quicksand. Alas....
- Worst Picture
Swingin' Kitty Love
Ah, to be in love. In the jungle. With cheesy 70s music playing. And a slow-motion cavort with a cheetah.
