Steigler (John Hillerman), a Nazi agent, has defected to the Allied
Forces and agrees to give away all the secrets he knows - which would be a

And wouldn't you know it, soon enough, Gargantua has a chance to fight
Wonder Woman when she rescues Steigler. But Wonder Woman does not defeat
Gargantua by brute force but by compassion ... and soon enough she and the

you know it, all the baddies are thrown into the slammer while Wonder
Woman brings her gorilla friend back to Africa, where he belongs ...
Believe it or not, I have seen lots of giant gorilla films ...
