INVISIBLE GHOST / Astor Pictures - 1941

Hello again everbloody, and welcome to Mittwoch Oldie Moldie B+W Spook Theater! Starting this Friday, we're rearranging our schedule a bit, so, I, Tabonga, will post on Wednesday and Friday, then he, Eegah!!, now has Saturday and Monday!..

This week we gots another feature starring Dungeon best pal, Bela Lugosi! Check out the misspelling of Polly Ann Young's name on that classic Mexican lobby poster.

Astor Pictures also distributed FOUR SIDED TRIANGLE, ROBOT MONSTER, CAT-WOMEN OF THE MOON, SHE DEMONS, GIANT FROM THE UNKNOWN, MISSILE TO THE MOON, FRANKENSTEIN'S DAUGHTER, THE BLOODY BROOD and PEEPING TOM!.. Some good shit there!

What an awesome title card!! The cartoonish music is all redone stock compositions from their vast library of sounds, so we can move along...

Lil' Dungeon pet Rufus the Gnat just finish his banana smoothie and say he all ready to push that big red 'GO' button and start today's Eariffic Earclip rolling up the hill! Okay, he push it, here's!.. INVISIBLE GHOST!

Bela opines about his dead beautiful wife to Evans the Butler.

This SUC-KER! gets mixed up with his girlfriend's maid, and now she's trying to blackmail him!

For no reason ever explained, Bela's 'dead' wife comes around at times and gives him the evil eye...

...And, commands him to do things!

Actually, bad things! Like, smothering the maid with his jacket!

Of course, frisky train driver is blamed and gets thrown in prison!.. Dames!

Bela gets the vibe again.

Guess it's time for another surprise attack on some unsuspecting victim!

The very best part of this flick is that Evans the Butler, played by Clarence Muse, is the most intelligent person in the house, and doesn't speak in the stereotypical way as others did. Now, that's damn refreshing!

She's baaack!..

Im beginning to understand!.. I'm dead!!

Everbloody gets to see for theirself that Bela's not entirely in control of his own actions.

Great Caesar's Ghost!!

Simply gorgeous film. It took me a long time to realise it, and I'm embarrassed now at how easily swayed I was by the standard voices.
Wonderful, wonderful film.
