Ray "Crash" Corrigan (February 14, 1902 – August 10, 1976), born Raymond Benard, was an American actor most famous for appearing in many B-Western films. He also was a stuntman and frequently acted as silver screen gorillas in gorilla costumes that he owned, both at the beginning and end of his film career.

In 1937 Corrigan purchased land in the Santa Susana Mountains foothills in Simi Valley and developed it into a movie ranch called "Corriganville". The movie ranch was used for location filming in film serials, feature films, and television shows, as well as for the performance of live western shows for tourists. Bob Hope later bought the ranch in 1966 and renamed it "Hopetown". It is now a Regional Park and nature preserve.<ref>"Corriganville Park." LAMountains.com. Retrieved: June 23, 2013.</ref>
