ONE BODY TOO MANY (1944) Directed by Frank MacDonald **

If, like me, you are a fan of the "Old dark house" sub-genre this is a fairly entertaining example from the 1940's. The clichés come thick and fast - relatives gather in an old mansion for the reading of the Will of an eccentric rich relative, a stormy night, a sinister butler and....well, if you've seen THE CAT AND THE CANARY you know the score. Jack Haley (the tin man of OZ) is the cowardly hero and Lugosi as the sinister butler who gets some of the best lines in what is an above average script for this kind of film. Available on You Tube.
