Ray "Crash" Corrigan, film actor, stuntman, and owner of Corriganville Ranch, Simi Valley, CA. Many Western films and TV series were filmed there beginning in 1938 into the 1960s. I believe the first movie filmed there was The Drums of Fu Munchu serials; then Fort Apache (1948); The Long Ranger 1949-1957; Cisco Kid 1950-1956; Adventures of Kit Carson; Rin Tin Tin 1954-59; Have Gun Will Travel 1957-1963; Casey Jones 1957. According to his own letter I read at his son Tom's restaurant website, Crash stated that more than 3,500 films and TV shows used his ranch at one time or another.
From 1936-1938, Corrigan appeared in the first 24 Mesquiteers films (Republic made a total of 51 Mesquiteers films from 1936-1943) Corrigan often got into his gorilla suit for film rolls. He died in 1976 at the age of 74.
