The Mighty Peking Man
(Celestial Movies Hd, astro Ch 309, 5.50pm) the campy stuff made by the asylum pales in comparison with the campy stuff made by Shaw brothers, as this towering (whoops, I said it again) KingKong- derived tale proves. danny Lee and Ku Feng are a mismatched pair of adventurers who journey to the Himalayas where they find the giant ape of the title — and Samantha (evelyn Kraft), the beautiful blonde raised by the ape after she was stranded in the mountains as a child. Peking Man, aka utam, is brought back to Hong Kong where he is shackled and treated like a sideshow beast. When Samantha (who falls in love with Lee’s character) is threatened, utam escapes and starts breaking stuff. Much climbing of tall buildings ensues. Kraft running around in an animal-skin bikini doesn’t hurt the film one bit either.
