More On Emil Van Horn Hollywood's Most Famous Motion Picture Gorilla

I have written two other posts about Emil Van Horn who I knew in New Orleans in 1965 and 1966. Click on the label Emil Van Horn below to read them.
  I found this just recently. This has the most information on Emil Van Horn I have ever run across.
    They say no one knows his birthdate or birthplace. I seem to remember him telling me he was Hungarian or at least if not that eastern European.
In the video below from Blond Venus Emil Van Horn claimed in a 1939 interview in the article above that it was him in this video. No one seems to be sure who it was.
