Mighty Joe Young

While living in Africa as a child, Jill Young is allowed to adopt a baby gorilla. Years later only Jill is able to control the giant-sized creature, now known as Mighty Joe Young.

A group of New York showmen take Joe to America, but things go wrong when the gorilla runs amok in a night club.
