Slightly OT, but has anyone here ever seen The Black Cat with Karloff and Legosi?.

THE BLACK CAT is a seriously weird and kinky movie, especially for the 1930's. It's easily the best and most fascinating of the Karloff/Lugosi collaborations, and definitely worth checking out.

It's also interesting in that Karloff is basically playing a sinister Lugosi-like character and Lugosi is playing a tormented, sympathetic Karloff-like character. It's like they're both playing each other's role!

One warning: Don't be fooled by the title. The movie has absolutely nothing to do with Poe!
