Mongo,

Glad your enjoying the serial.The gorilla suit made its appearence in Darkest Africa,Jungle Girl, Perils of Nyoka and Panther Girl of the Kongo. Ray" Crash" Corrigan or Emil Horne often wore the gorilla suits. Corrigan wore his suit in other films but had to do so uncredited.

Leo the lion started his career as one of the logos for early MGM movies and some locations for this serial can be spotted in Alexander Kordas Jungle Book.

Ken, I hope all is OK with you. I am waiting for Chapter 13 "Ambush" which I expected to appear on the boards on Saturday.

I can't wait to see how our girl Nyoka gets sprung from that tiger trap.

 

In any event I hope you and the family had a nice Thanksgiving.

Ken, it's hard to believe that next week is the final chapter of our Jungle Girl already. I certainly enjoyed going back to the Bijou once again.

Can't wait to see how those dastardly villains meet their due next week since I imagine that Nyoka will be spared the spears.

Good stuff, Ken, just as I expected. Since the jungle serials are my favorite I'm gonna miss Nyoka next week. I guess that's why "Survivor" is my favorite reality show, taking place in far off jungles.

I'll still be looking forward to the old west next week where I'll imagine Clayton Moore in the part as one of the James brothers.

Mongo,

I'm sure you will enjoy the change of pace of the next serial.Clayton Moore plays Jesse James and Steve Darrell plays his brother Frank. Veteran actor George J. Lewis plays the main henchman and Noel Niell [Lois Lane in TV'S Superman] provides the female interest. Directed by Fred Brannon and stunt master Yakima Canutt.

Ken, what happened? I thought at first you were taking a holiday break from the Bijou, but your not back yet.

I hope your not packing it in since I'm looking forward to Chapter 3 "The Lost Tunnel".

These serials are a bright spot around here and bring us back to the old neighborhood theaters of our youth. It's perfect for a classic movie site.

I just hope you weren't deterred by some of the negativity on the boards lately. Not to worry, since we've been through this before and this too will pass.

Hope to see you back soon Ken.
