Description by OLDIES.com:
Originally produced by Monogram, Bowery At Midnight is loaded with subplots and provides a wonderful showcase for Lugosi's inimitable way with horror movie dialogue and action.
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 2825 ratings.
In this 1942 film, Bela Lugosi appears in a better than usual role. Playing a man who leads a dual life (Professor at day; criminal at night), he is convincing in both parts. The film is filled with sub-plots and character actors of the time. One interesting scene shows Lugosi walking past a theater on the side of which is a poster for another Lugosi film...a little added touch of humor you don't normally get from films of this period.
Bela rules! This is a pretty good representation of Bela's movies. Very entertaining! The ending will make you wish justice was that easy!
THIS WAS A GOOD FLICK, BUT JST AS THE MOVIE CLIMAXED IT WAS OVER? I THOUGHT THE MOVIE COULD HAVE INCORPORATED THE BASEMENT OF ZOMBIES MORE. MR. LOGOSI WAS GREAT THOUGH AND STILL FOUND MANY REASONS TO LOVE THIS MOVIE!
One of Lugosi's better than mediocre Monogram films has him as college professor by day, ruthless villain by night. Good Bowery Mission setting and one line of dialogue in particular where one gangster pulls a gun on another that is absolutely uproarious!
I enjoyed this little thriller in which Mr. Lugosi is featured to good advantage. Several familiar character actors are in the film, and the story line moves right along to a thrilling climax. The picture is razor sharp with 35mm quality, but I would guess Alpha started with a nice old 16mm print. As to the audio, I have to agree with film historian Wm. K. Everson's comment that Monogram sound tracks have lots of "static" or noise. The dialogue is clearly understood, but lots of noise which is impossible to filter out.
