BBtv – Ape Lad: The True Hollywood Story of Aloysius Koford

Today on Boing Boing tv, we revisit Adam "Ape Lad" Koford's great-grandpappy Aloysius P. Koford for a never-before-exposed expose of his illustrious Hollywood career — complete with walrii, scantily clad Mary Pickford lookalikes, and movie studio copyright disputes of yesteryear that may just rival, in their fury, the pugnacious picket lines of today. Plus: the real history of the Wilhelm Scream.
