THE CORPSE VANISHES (1942) *** ½

Of Bela Lugosi’s many cheap B and C grade movies he made in the early 40’s after being fired by Universal, this is one of the best.  He’s a mad doctor who sends poisoned orchids to brides on their wedding day.  They die at the altar and Lugosi swipes the bodies en route to the morgue.  He uses the bodies to help his wife live forever.  A fast talking journalist goes undercover as a bride to get the scoop and stop Lugosi.  Lugosi is as fun to watch as ever and is very cool while sleeping in his and her coffins with his wife.  Angelo (Freaks, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome) Rossito plays his assistant, and in also co-starred with Bela in 1947’s Scared to Death (which is the only color Lugosi movie).
