The Ape is a 1940 American horror film made for Monogram Pictures, co-written by Curt Siodmak and starring Boris Karloff.
Dr. Bernard Adrian is a kindly mad scientist who seeks to cure a young woman’s polio. He needs spinal fluid from a human to complete the formula for his experimental serum. Meanwhile, a vicious circus ape has broken out of its cage, and is terrorizing the townspeople.
The Ape eventually breaks into Dr. Adrian’s lab. The Doctor manages to kill it before any harm can come to himself. However, the spinal fluids he requires to perform his experiments have all been destroyed during the struggle between him and the Ape.
Doctor Adrian then concocts an idea: he will tear off the ape’s flesh and use its skin to disguise himself as the escaped circus animal and murder townspeople in order to extract their spinal fluid. Thus the murders will be blamed on the Ape and he, himself, will manage to avoid any suspicion. However, one of his attacks towards the film’s end is unsuccessful; he is fatally knifed and the Ape’s “true identity” is revealed.
Directed and produced by William Nigh, written by Adam Shirk, Curt Siodmak and Richard Carroll, starring Boris Karloff, Maris Wrixon and Gene O’Donnell

“LADDIE” — 1940 (“Laddie, A True Blue Story” by Gene Stratton-Porter)
I’ve read and own this delightful story. I was happy to find that it was made to a movie!
“Laddie Stanton (Tim Holt) lives on the farm run by his father John (Robert H. Barrat), with a mother and four younger siblings, while on the neighboring farm lives Charles Pryor (Miles Mander), with wife Anna (Mary Forbes) and daughter Pamela (Virginia Gilmore), recently immigrated from England. Laddie develops feelings for Pamela, whose demanding father makes no secret of his disapproval. ‘Little Sister’ seems to know everyone’s secrets, and even speaks for Laddie with Pamela when he’s right there (her tendency to blurt out confidences never seems to get her into trouble). Charles is a very strict military man, whose son Robert (Peter Cushing) has performed an undisclosed indiscretion back in England that led to their relocating to this tiny Indiana community. He looks down on the Stantons because they are farmers, taking pride in the soil which gives back so much, producing the goods that end up on everyone’s dinner table. It’s definitely an old fashioned story with universal appeal, played with believable warmth..”.IMBD
