Need help finding name of an old TV-Movie

Okay, I know this will sound obscure and I will be really surprised if any of you can truly help me out, but here it goes.

In the early 1980s (circa 81 to 83) a movie was made about a killer ape, only it was a gorilla that was solid white/albino. I remember the ape was little more than some person in an outfit, and that the ape had red eyes. The only reason I remember it at all is that I watched it with my cousin on New Year's Eve. Like I said, a lot of cheesy movies were made for TV in the early 80s, and I doubt this will ring a bell with anyone, but it's one of those things I have gone most of my life without knowing the title for and it bugs me! Thanks!

The red eye detail might mean it's The Dark (1979), but it's more likely to be either Shriek of the Mutilated (1974) or Snowbeast (1977), the latter being the only TV movie of the three.

It also sounds like the Star Trek: OS episode with Julie Newmar. According to IMdB the episode is Friday's Child.
