Fellow Svengoolie SvenPals everywhere will be excited about his upcoming showcase of a classic Universal Studios horror-mystery-comedy adaptation of an earlier studio mystery-thriller feature classic.
Seven years earlier, Edgar G. Ulmer directed his own Universal dramatic horror-crime-adventure screen adaptation of Poe’s “The Black Cat” (1934, with Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, Lucille Lund and John Carradine).
This will mark Sven’s third coast-to-coast showcase of Rogell’s 1941 Universal adaptation of “The Black Cat” on Me-TV. Sven previously showcased the 1941 version of “The Black Cat” back in Sept. 2014 and Nov. 2016.
