The Burning Orphanage Scene From "MIGHTY JOE YOUNG" (1949) (video)


Jill Young (Terry Moore) and her friend Gregg (Ben Johnson) are fleeing from the law...

...after a judge orders that her beloved pet gorilla Joe be shot to death.

But a burning orphanage causes them to cut short their escape.

Excellent stop-motion animation by Willis O'Brien and Ray Harryhausen...

...make this is one of the most thrilling sequences ever filmed.

I neither own nor claim any rights to this material.  Just having some fun with it.  Thanks for watching!
