Okay Ralphie, c'mon in and take care of bidniz... In other woids, it's time to push that big red 'GO' button that's attached to our Eariffic Earclip for tonight, here's... THE MIGHTY PEKING MAN!
After reading about the Peking Man in the newspapers, a group of explorers set out and locate the area where the creature had been sighted. They set up camp.
Here's popular Danny Lee as Johnnie Fang, he doesn't notice the big ape's hand coming up behind him! Danny had 120 acting credits and 22 producing credits, not bad!
Here's what the movie's all about for Tabonga, stunning knockout Evelyne Kraft as half naked jungle girl and pal to the big ape, Ah Wei! She's the reason the movies rated PG-13! We'll get to that...
Sadly, she recently died suddenly of heart failure in Jan., 2009, at the age of 57 and had long retired from film. She had 13 acting credits.
Ah Wei shows Johnnie the wreckage of her parent's plane.
She recounts how the Peking Man saved her from the wreck and raised her in the jungle. So, where did her clothes comes from?
Then, of all things, Ah Wei gets bitten by a viper very near the danger zone, Johnnie first sucks the venom out of the wound, then applies this poultice to it!
This scene is totally whack, but very fun at the same time!
Evelyne's left boob hangs out of her top for probably a total of 2-3 minutes throughout the movie, making things quite enjoyable!
Here, see strips off her new clothes and throws them out the porthole, she hates them that much! They were short shorts and a tight fitting top!
Here's a shot of the sleazy cast of characters trying to make a buck off the Peking Man back in Hong Kong, then the world... Hey, look, there's Goober!!
The P Man is F'ing C Sik!!! Look at them big old feets!.. Anybloody gots a giant feather?
All they can do is ride it out, but at least they're inside something!
It looks like he had to sit on his own poop, so, it's a good thing there was a storm!!
When they get to Hong Kong, everbloody's all excited to get a peek at the Peking Man!
But, all anybloody wants to do is throw rotten tomatoes at him! No matter how hard I try, I don't get it!
You'd think Dick Cheney was running the show!
Two great shots as the P Man escapes into the city!
Of course, the military has to get involved!
Lookin' both ways!
It's pretty gruesome to watch P Man in flames before he plunges over the side of the building to his flaming death.
Johnnie carries Ah Wei to safety after the wild ordeal.
