Black Cat (1941)

Bela Lugosi was in this dark house movie, which for the most part wasn’t really that memorable, but does have a stellar cast of actors. Both Gale Sondegard and Basil Rathbone make another appearance in this movie. There is actually a joke from another one of the actors who plays the main character, Broderick Crawford, that Rathbone thinks he is Sherlock Holmes. Despite the reference to much better movies there isn’t much else to say about this movie aside from the fact that it is another one of those meandering sort of comedic dark house movies that were churned out in droves during the late 1930s and early 1940s. People were starved for entertainment back then and this passed the mustard pretty well. We also get a goofy guy whose schtick is to make a lot of random noises.
