Trivia: UNDERSEA KINGDOM is the oldest MSTed material. Excluding this serial, the oldest films are 103-THE MAD MONSTER and 105-THE CORPSE VANISHES, both released in 1942.

Born Ray Benard, stuntman RAY "CRASH" CORRIGAN (1903-1976) had his own gorilla suits and played gorillas in most of his movies like White Gorilla, the 1936 serial Darkest Africa, and 1958's Bride and the Beast, penned by Ed Wood. (However, he was not the one in the gorilla suit in 107-Robot Monster). He also appeared without the gorilla suit in many Westerns.
