DescriptionWord of a monster ape ten stories tall living in the Himalayas reaches fortune hunters in Hong Kong. They travel to India to capture it, but wild animals and quicksand dissuade all but Johnny, an adventurer with a broken heart. He finds the monster and discovers it’s been raising a scantily-clad woman, Samantha, since she survived a plane crash years before that killed her parents. In the idyllic jungle, Johnny and Samantha fall in love. Then Johnny asks her to convince “Utam” to go to Hong Kong. Lu Tien, an unscrupulous promoter, takes over: Utam is in chains for freak show exhibitions. When Lu Tien assaults Samantha, Utam’s protective instincts take over: havoc in Hong Kong.

    Thanks for the post.
    Love the Asian films.
    They have a different slant on things, but are still accessible.
    Like European spy films.

    Of all the “King Kong” stories, GOLIATHON/MIGHTY PEKING MAN is the most sympathetic and one of the best.
