I love movies from the 1930s and 1940s. I adore snappy dialogue and playful banter from any era, any genre.

    It took a while for the charm and chemistry between Fay Wray and Chester Morris to kick in. Once the other characters became involved in the main plot things picked up. The cast was great. I always enjoy Lionel Stander. He had a good-sized role here. Ward Bond had a bit part as a police officer.

    I watched this for Mary Carlisle. She had a sizable part this time. The cast in general was enjoyable. It got pretty silly at times, though.

    Now I understand the whole Clara Bow "It" thing. She really WAS all that.

    This was the last horror film that featured both Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi. The story was disturbing but when you realize this was closer to reality than not...shiver.

    Karloff was the standout as a graverobber. Russell Wade was cute so I will be looking for more of his films! 😉
