It is a human tragedy, abject and hellishly human. Especially memorable in it is the acting of Walter Huston.

Basically, it's trashy stuff -- but it's choice trashy stuff. Plus, it's all the more alluring because it came from MGM -- the bastion of middle class morality.

Leeches, slime, 'filthy natives,' human sacrifice, Virginia Bruce's briefly exposed right breast -- 'Kongo' lacks the artistry and novelty of 'Freaks,' MGM's other 1932 pre-code shocker, but it makes up for it in sheer sleazy chutzpah.

That great character actor Huston never gave a more brutal and shocking performance than he did in Kongo.

Never gets things quite right about all its melodramatics.

Mr. Huston does vigorous work in the part, but it cannot be said that the spectators ever thought him as awesome as did the characters on the screen.
