Scared Stiff

NOT ON DVD

Chauffeur Clyde Cook is hired by antagonist Stuart Holmes to transport him so he may elope with Eileen Percy, whom Clyde is also in love with. Clyde purposefully loses his way in a blinding rainstorm, and the trio seek refuge in the nearest house, wherein lives a scientist (James Mack), his daughter (Shirley Palmer), and a huge gorilla under the scientist's care. Thrills and frights ensue during the night, when the beast escapes from its cage.
