Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

The Monster and the ApeW. Scott Poole recently posted a good review of 1945's The Monster and the Ape.

Ok, so there’s this trained ape and an invincible robot and a mad scientist is trying to use the trained ape to steal the robot… never mind, you really don’t want to hear the plot of The Monster and the Ape. It is juvenile and generally awful. It’s also a worthy addition to your collection if you love mid-century popular culture.
