A young woman who has raised a giant gorilla from an infant brings him to Hollywood years later seeking her fortune in order to save her family's ranch.
Despite the carnage in the nightclub and orphanage scenes, there are no on screen deaths. Joe beats some lions, and we are told the police shoot them, but we never see anyone or anything actually die.
Aren't you afraid of Joe?
Gregg Johnson: I sure am, but I don't want him to know it.
As Joe lifts Jill to the top of the rocks after their first encounter with the cowboys, a ghost image of her legs, presumably a reflection off the painted backdrop, is visible.
Opening credits prologue: Africa
