Corrigan 1.0

Inspired by Bongo's previous post about Corrigan's final appearance in his original suit in THE APE (1940) I rummaged through the Gorilla Men Vault for a pictorial record of the cowboy's initial run of appearances in feature film and serials. There were some tweaks to the suit over the years (howzabout a the uni-horn for FLASH GORDON!) but it was definitely getting ragged by the time he appeared in the Monogram cheapie THE APE (1940).

    I've got signed photos of various gorilla suit guys, but never expected to find one of Corrigan's Gorilla (though I have George Barrows' and Steve Calvert's). Only collectors like Forry Ackerman (and probably Bob Burns and Don Glut) were prescient enough to get Ray to sign a gorilla photo. But I can matte this signature with a photo from DARKEST AFRICA and have something great for both my gorilla man collection AND my serial collection.
