Bowery at Midnight - 1942

What makes this Bowery at Midnight so fun, and such a pleasure to watch from other Bela Lugosi films is the huge amount characters. It is like comparing string to rope. And while it might be more difficult to follow all the strands, you do end up with a stronger product. The reason I give it a four is because the storyline has multiple strands as well, and some of them end short and others, like the ending, are awkwardly woven into the whole.

The Return of Stickman is a product of Monlux Illustration, “Home of the Creative Mind!”™
