(no subject)

I'll bet you didn't spend your weekend watching Billy Barty and a host of other little people swinging on vines through a jungle while sporting incredibly silly wigs and out-acting Johnny Weissmuller.

Oh yeah, there's also a guy in a badly-used gorilla suit (seriously, like part of the face has been bashed in), locations that morph from tropical to high desert depending on the angle of the shot, and Ann Savage oozing jungle-chic as the missing Army captain stranded with the pygmies.

Yes, it's 1950's Pygmy Island. Ann's second-to-last movie before her original retirement in the '50s. From Detour to this. I woulda retired, too.
