Pedro, the simian star of several yesteryear Hindi films including ZIMBO (1958), PEDRO (1960), ZIMBO COMES TO TOWN (1960), TARZAN AUR GORILLA (1963) and ZIMBO FINDS A SON (1966) represents, to me, much of what is so fun and crazy about Indian popular cinema, where melodrama, comedy, thrills, and music meld together to form a unique and highly addicting form of motion picture entertainment enjoyed by millions around the world! If you are not familiar with Indian cinema, I hope this blog will help make you eager to check it out!
For the curious, here is Pedro the Ape Bomb (or Human Chimpanzee Pedro, as he was sometimes billed) in action, along with the film’s star Azad, in ZIMBO.
Although Bollwyood is the main focus of the Pedro (the Ape Bomb) blog, Hollywood B movies, Japanese Kaiju, Hong Kong spy films, vintage television, Spaghetti westerns, 20th century pop culture and much more may make an appearance.
I hope you will enjoy your visits as much as I will enjoy your visitations! You never know what treats you may find on Pedro (the Ape Bomb) blog.
