A Gland Apart

Mad doctors are folks who play God
Wearing smocks they will poke, cut and prod
With their capable hands
They give apes human glands...
This one's rockin' a smokin' hot bod.

An endocrinologist turns an ape into a woman in Captive Wild Woman (Edward Dmytryk; 1943).  Cheela, the gorilla (Ray Corrigan), Dr. Sigmund Walters (John Carradine), his assistant, Miss Strand (Fay Helm), Dorothy Colman (Martha MacVicar, on the operating table), and "Paula Dupree" (Acquanetta), aka the Wild Woman.
