In it, Ouha, an exceptional ape from the jungles of Borneo, is educated and transformed into the Napoleon of Apes by a well-meaning American scientist. But tragically, Ouha eventually falls victim to a Beauty and the Beast doomed romance. There is an archetypal quality to the character of Ouha, as there is to Tarzan and King Kong- if he is no more plausible than Jules Lerminas To-Ho, he is no less relevant as a specter at the feast of civilization and modern morality.
