In the movie, "Murder's in the Rue Morgue" with Bela Lugosi, is there
a scene where a Gorilla stuffs the body of a lady up a chimney? I
thought i remembered seeing that scene on t.v. a long time ago, but I
just bought the video and it is not in there. Only the after-effects.
Did they ever actually show the ape putting the body up there or is it
my imagination?

Hello gwilk-ga,

Yes, the scene was in the movie with Bela Lugosi, however, I can not
tell you why it is not on your video.

The site mentioned in the comments has this to say?

?And a view of the girl?s mother stuffed feet first up a chimney are
the chief horror sequences, but not too objectionable in treatment.
The chimney stuffing has but little significance in this scenario,
whereas in the Poe original it was the hub around which the murder
mystery revolved.? 

?To its credit there is the murder of a woman in a locked room near
the end of the film. And she is found planted upside down in the

The Phantom of the Rue Morgue (1954),
Murders in the Rue Morgue (1971)
Murders in the Rue Morgue (1986)
You may want to check out some other versions for that scene.

That is indeed a scene in the movie. Appears you saw an edited for TV
version (that scene is considered one of the most graphic)
