THE MAD MAGICIAN - Arthur Lange/Emil Newman/Dr. Samuel Hoffman - "Spooky Theremin Theme" (1954)

"The Mad Magician" was an excellent outing for theremin maestro Dr. Samuel Hoffman, and added to the music of composers Arthur Lange and Emil Newman, it makes for some pretty creepy music!! Tra La La Boom De Ay!!!!

That's what this movie is about anyway, Creepy!!! And I'm sure Dr. Hoffman should officially get credit for sending chills down more people's spines than anyone else on earth! Although he died in 1967, Dr. Samuel Hoffman's achievements will live on until time stands still!!

Vincent Price looks downright debonair without the ever present moustache that we've all grown so accustomed to! Donald Randolph as Ross Ormond seems a bit perplexed by Vincent's charm!

Here we have the always stunning Eva Gabor as Claire Ormond in what was possibly her only horror appearance until she portrayed Lisa Douglas on "Green Acres" and "Petticoat Junction."

And for all of you people out there that can't read and thought this was about "Mad Magazine" Go Here for the official "Mad Magazine" site!!

This was shown on Elvira’s “Movie macabre” back in the day. There was a big promotion, and you could get your own 3-D glasses to watch all the mayhem. It didn’t work, except for the intro scene where Elvira threw popcorn right into the audience’s faces!
