Genre: Mystery Horror
Director: Reginald LeBorg / Joseph H. Lewis
Starring: Lon Chaney, Patricia Morrison, J. Carrol Naish / Bela Lugosi, Polly Ann Young, Clarence MuseIn Brief: Double feature of the first of Lon Chaney's "Inner Sanctum" mysteries, Calling Dr. Death (1943) and Bela Lugosi's 1940s Monogram Nine series, Invisible Ghost (1941). The first finds Chaney as a neurologist (with a specialty in hypnoisis) who may or may not have murdered his faithless wife — if only he could remember.The second finds Lugosi as a nice family man who is driven into a homicidal rage whenever he sees his supposedly dead faithless wife. Creaky fun with flashes of cinematic inspiration.
Genre: Horror Mystery
Director: Harold Young / Joseph H. Lewis
Starring: Lon Chaney Jr., Evelyn Ankers, Martin Kosleck / Bela Lugosi, Polly Ann Young, Clarence MuseIn Brief: Two films with the word “ghost” in the title and nary a specter in sight is the defining aspect of this double bill of 1940s horror — The Frozen Ghost (1945) and Invisible Ghost (1941). The first stars Lon Chaney Jr. as a hypnotist who has a breakdown when a man dies during his act. The second stars Bela Lugosi as a kindly family man — who, every so often, goes around strangling people (a character flaw of note). Both are about an hour long and both offer stylish — and engagingly silly — entertainment.
