Sorry. You got one right: Yes on "White Zombie". No "Dracula". No "Chandu the Magician (but that's a good guess!)

Correct!


#1.) "You'll Find Out": A mystery/comedy with "Boris Karloff" & "Peter Lorre" - where Bela Lugosi is a psychic medium (hence the turban) and there is one of the coolest and most swanky seance scenes ever with Bela conjuring the "Fire of Death" to protect the room from Evil spirits while Kay Kaiser's band plays some mood music ...complete with glowing conductor baton! The film was nominated for an Academy Award in 1940 for Best Original Song (I'd Know You Anywhere). Yeah, it's got musical numbers!


#2.) - "Mark of the Vampire" (also known as Vampires of Prague) 1935: Mark of the Vampire was originally 75 minutes, but was cut back to 61 minutes by MGM. Reportedly this was due to incestuous overtones – then unacceptable by the standards of the Production Code – between Count Mora (played by Lugosi) and his daughter Luna. In the original script, it is explained that Count Mora was condemned to eternity as a vampire for this crime. The now-mysterious blood on the right temple is the result of him shooting himself out of guilt.


#3.) "White Zombie" (1932) This is one of my all time favorite films, for many reasons. It has some amazing visuals, that still are creepy and striking. It's perhaps the very first "Zombie" film ever made. It treated it's black characters not as stereo-types so common in the 30's but as real people not in the embrassing "over-the-top" comedy relief all black characters were forced to play in films of that time period. And, of course, Béla Lugosi stars as the antagonist, "Murder Legendre". One of Béla's best roles ever! Really at the top of his game. Béla Lugosi is in Fantaisticly extreme villianous make-up (with ultra arched eye-brows and a satanic looking forked beard) designed by the famous Jack Pierce - the genius responsible for the make-up of several other famous horror films of the era including Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, and The Mummy (1932). "White Zombie"'s an American independent Pre-Code horror film directed and produced by brothers Victor Halperin and Edward Halperin. The screenplay by Garnett Weston, based on a book by William Seabrook, it tells the story of a young woman's transformation into a zombie at the hands of an evil voodoo master; Béla Lugosi as "Murder Legendre" the King of the Zombies!
I so love this film, I made a "Tiki-Art Low-Brow" painting bout it: "Béla Lugosi has a Zombie", 24" x 30" acrylic on Canvas.
- OKAY - You Won! Personal message me where you want your signed Tiki Calendar! ALOHA!

I gotta say, Holler Waller, I am impressed!

I must not be the only Bela Lugosi nut in the Tiki Tribe!

I knew folks would get "White Zombie", and "Mark of the Vampire" is pretty easy for a Lugosi fan once you notice the bullet hole in his head...

...but I NEVER thought anyone would guess "You'll Find Out"!! - even though it is a wonderful movie. It's a musical comedy/haunted mansion romp done in total 1940's over the top glamor style. It has the three greatest silver screen villains of all time ( Boris Karloff, Peter Lorre, and Bela Lugosi ) all working together against the odd-ball comedy maestro of his day: "Kay Kaiser and his Musical Collage Orchestra".

It's BEAUTIFULLY shot is that glorious Black and White that just glows on the screen with shadows and lighted areas crafting created depth in this mansion of weird tribal artifacts ( I keep looking for a Tiki, but not sure I've found one yet) like no color film can.


Boris is at his ultra-suave best.


Peter Lorre is trim and lethal in a smoking lounge-lizard kinda' way.


Then Bela Lugosi comes in as a psychic in a turban, evil incarnate in all the splendor a 1940's Hollywood could create. the ultimate scene in the film is a seance, held by Bela Lugosi - who seals the room with these mega-deadly Tesla Phantasm silver spheres shooting Frankenstein voltage in "The Fire of Death" at any "evil spirit" (or helpless victim) trying to pass through the exits of the room during the seance.


Kay Kaiser's band just so happens to set up in the grand ball room where the seance is being held, and sets the mood- with glowing conductor baton weaving in gloomy atmosphere!


Freakin' awesome! Lugosi enters the Spirit Box and goes into a Deep Trance... bringing in the supernatural, and maybe an untimely early death to a young heiress... a real show stopping scene that is just off the swank scale! All this plus, a some musical numbers.

Anyways - it's worth a watch.
Congrats H.W.!
