The Ritz Brothers make their final appearance for 20th Century Fox in this howling comedy. When a wealthy man fears he is being stalked by a murderer known as "The Gorilla," he hires the Ritz Brothers to investigate. But no sooner do the zany brothers arrive when a real gorilla escapes from captivity and makes himself comfortable at the wealthy man's mansion. As one of the characters says, if you can't hear the screams, you'd better cleans out your ears. With cinematography by seven-time Oscar nominee Edward Cronjager, this laugh riot from director Allen Dwan also stars Patsy Kelly and Bela Lugosi! (BW)
