The White Gorilla (1945) isn’t an allegory for race, despite having a black gorilla and a white gorilla displaying hatred for each other against an African backdrop. No, it’s just a chance for Hollywood apeman extraordinaire Ray Corrigan to reuse the white-furred gorilla suit he’d already worn in the same year’s White Pongo.  And as long as we’re reusing things, let’s cobble together half of this hour-long feature from footage from the silent serial Perils of the Jungle (1927), which the producer just had lying around.  Is that quality entertainment, or what?
