I habitually record old mysteries that play on TCM onto my Tivo. So I was pleasantly surprised the other night to see a film from 1933 called Before Dawn. The surprise was that Warner Oland is in it. And he plays a really nasty villainous doctor. Very believably too.
It's a rather spooky film with a "ghost" in an old house and people hunting for a hidden treasure. Anyway, if you haven't seen it and you're an Oland fan it's definitely worth a look.
I have it on CD it is a lot of fun..I enjoy the "OLD DARK HOUSE" flicks,thunder,lighting and one must have a weird spooky looking Butler to meet you at the door in a thunder storm,and a creepy looking maid to also lend some spookyness to it...and then of course what great movies like that wouldn't have secret panels and people watching you thru a large picture of some grouchy looking old guy...and of course you must have bodies disappearing all over the place...and then also one espically scarey room that no one has been into for 50 years as there was a strage killing in there and now strange moanings and other spine chilling sounds come from it after midnight...heheheheee OOOooooooo!!!!
