Bela Lugosi Meets a Brooklyn Gorilla – The Cinema Snob

The meeting everyone was asking for. Bela Lugosi, a gorilla, and a Martin & Lewis knockoff!

About thecinemasnob

Brad Jones portrays The Cinema Snob, a pretentious film snob who is stuck with reviewing Z-Grade exploitation flicks of the past. I'm a big guy. For you.


  1. Of all the weird films I’ve heard Bela Lugosi starring in, mostly the Ed Wood stuff, I never really heard of this one.

    2:32- No wonder the title of this movie sounds so goofy.

    6:15- Speaking as a Pepsi fan, I find that joke very insulting.

    I really want to see Jerry Lewis’s retarded clone fuckin’ trip over a banana peel, fall out a window, land head first into a bed of spikes, and instantly die.

    14:54- Just hope that song won’t be sung be Seth MacFarlane, the bastard.

    I love your angry “Wha wha wha.” It’s about as angry as The Nostalgia Critic’s in his Lost in Space review.

    20:27- OH, FOR CHRIST SAKE!

    God, if I want a comedy duo in a movie with Bela Lugosi, I’ll stick with Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein, thank you very much.

  2. And I thought Pauly Shore was irritating, my god.

  3. Snorgatch Pandalume

    I was just thinking while watching Sammy Petrillo do his Jerry Lewis schtick, “My God, how could anyone find this funny?” Then I realized, “Oh my God, this is the same schtick Adam Sandler does!” How reassuring to find out later in the review that I’m not the only one who thinks this. And how depressing to realize that there is a certain type of human being–who existed at least as far back as 1952–that actually found that kind of thing funny, and that today finds Adam Sandler funny.

  4. Captain Chaotica

    Oh, GAWD. I gotta say, I kinda agree with Mr. Landau–this _does_ make Ed Wood’s movies look a hell of a lot better by comparison. And you know how people sometimes say that someone “has a punchable face”? Well Sammy has a punchable VOICE. You heard me. I don’t _care_ if it makes sense, I want to punch that voice until it stops sounding like a human kazoo!

    Nice to see that the real-life guy was somewhat more likeable, it seems (even if he did still sound like that)! And at least Duke had a decent singing voice. Too bad all the songs were like, the bland, tuneless versions of the big ’50s balladeer hits, but at least they were _standable_.

  5. Rest in peace Mr. Lewis.
