    In the 1960 film "KONGA" in which Michael Gough had the lead part, does anyone know the name of the stunt player inside the "KONGA" suit? It was a question asked recentely, and I would like to know.

    Not really a stunt man, more like an actor. The IMDb lists Paul Stockman as playing Konga (uncredited)

    According to the trivia section on IMDB the original choice was an experienced "ape" actor named George Barrows. But they chose English actor Paul Stockman instead because he fitted the suit better !
