Captive Wild Woman (1943)

DK, Donkey Kong. DK, Donkey Kong is here.

John Carradine shows up in the first movie with this blog about a woman who can turn into an ape woman or a gorilla, it’s kind of both, depends on the mood I guess. Sometimes her face is hairy and she has claws. Other times she is full on guy in a monkey suit, the third time so far with this blog but there are a couple more times coming up soon when both Lugosi and Costello do their own share of monkeying around in a couple of movies. Other than the ape woman played by Aquanetta before they had 1980s glam metal, there is a lot of good circus/animal training footage and a wonderful fight between a lion and a tiger when the act goes out of control during a rehearsal.
