On the subject of CONGO BILL (1948), the suit used in the film has no identifiable gorilla man attached to the role that I know of. I have yet to see the serial so perhaps seeing the fellow in action may lend a clue but it is entirely reasonable that it may have been an extra or stunt man under the fur.....and dear lord!, what fur! CONGO BILL's ape has the distinction of shaggiest fella in the lineup. I am hard pressed to point to another suit with such ample, billowing, tresses. A joke about a bear and rabbit comes to mind but I'm too cultured to draw a correlation ;-)
