Newcastle , N.S.W. Australia newspaper publicity 13th & 14th October 1949 for Mr. Joseph Young Of Africa ( Mighty Joe Young, 1949 ), along with the Australian daybill image that has surfaced recently. The ''gorilla'' seemed to have done a little travelling to promote the film. From a Miscellaneous Notice that appeared in the Illawarra Mercury N.S.W. newspaper - '' Mr. Joseph Young Of Africa, the Gorilla Man, will arrive at Wollongong Railway station at 10.30 a.m. on Friday, November 4, 1949.'' I hope the ''Gorilla'' received plenty of bananas for his appearances.
