Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
Today we jump back a little bit to 1934’s The Black Cat starring Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff. I recently covered this film in my Halloween run of A Movie A Day and was quite impressed by it, mainly because Bela Lugosi got to kind of play the hero.
I say “kind of” because even though Lugosi helps out our hapless (and a bit annoying) young American leads, he’s still a creep. A creep for all the right reasons, mind you, but a creep nonetheless. It’s a great little Poeian thriller, with Lugosi and Karloff in quite an epic battle of wits.
If you know and love Tim Burton’s Ed Wood like I do, you’ll know these two didn’t always get along famously, but in today’s pic they seem to be having a fine moment of civility; Bela with his cigar and Boris with his proper English tea. Click to make the pic bigger!
Tomorrow’s behind the scenes pic will hear the lamentations of your women!
