SEVEN FOOTPRINTS TO SATAN was a horror comedy Thelma Todd made for First National in 1929. In this photo we see Thelma Todd and director Benjamin Christensen battling the gorilla that appeared in this picture, who is identified by the caption on the back as Charles Gemora.


Benjamin Christensen was also the director of two other Thelma Todd movies in this period, THE HAUNTED HOUSE and THE HOUSE OF HORROR.

Charles Gemora would appear as a gorilla again with Thelma Todd again in SEAL SKINS ( 1932 ) and BUM VOYAGE ( 1934 ). He played a gorilla in many other movies and is one of the best known of the Hollywood gorilla men today.
