Movie Clip

Night Monster (1942) - I Didn't Send For Any Psychiatrist Butler Rolf (Bela Lugosi) inducts shrink Dr. Harper (Irene Hervey) and crime writer pal Dick (Don Porter), leading to the first scene for Ralph Morgan as Ingston, lord of the spooky manor, hoisted by driver Laurie (Leif Erikson) and introducing Nils Asther as guru-like Singh, early in Universal's Night Monster, 1942.
Night Monster (1942) - They Call It Cosmic Substance The paralyzed master of the house Ingster (Ralph Morgan) gives the floor to his yogi (Nils Asther as Agor Singh) who explains to the group (doctors Francis Pierlot and Frank Reicher, butler Bela Lugosi, mystery writer Don Porter, shrink Irene Hervey and patient Fay Helm) about creepy Eastern theories, in Universal’s programmer Night Monster, 1942.
Night Monster (1942) - After What I've Seen And Heard Joining the expository opening for this semi-ensemble Universal programmer, Millie (Janet Shaw), maid in the mansion, expresses her discontent to Bela Lugosi as the butler Rolf, who’s not happy with her or the chauffeur Laurie (Leif Erikson), in the first feature by the noted Hollywood craftsman Ford Beebe, Night Monster, 1942.
Lion Hunters, The (1951) - A Friend With A Grievance After his first scene alone with lions, and a wounded adult male, Bomba (Johnny Sheffield) hurries to see his neighbors, whom he refers to as “Masai” (why not?), all uncredited actors but including Woody Strode in his first movie, in the fifth feature in the Monogram series, The Lion Hunters, 1951.
Lion Hunters, The (1951) - The Hunters Have Sent Me Young Woody Strode (as "Walu") in his big scene, which is tiny, with Johnny Sheffield ("Bomba"), caged Douglas Kennedy ("Marty"), Ann Todd (as "Jean") and Smoki Whitfield (Jonas) in the Monogram serial The Lion Hunters, 1951.
