THE BLACK CASTLE starring BORIS KARLOFF, RICHARD GREENE, LON CHANEY JR., STEPHEN McNALLY and PAULA CORDAY

Boris Karloff returns to his old Universal stamping grounds in the 1952 horror film THE BLACK CASTLE. The plot is motivated by a brace of 18th-century aristocrats, Beckett (Richard Greene) and Count Von Bruno (Stephen McNally). Invited to visit Von Bruno's castle in Austria, Beckett accepts, hoping in this way to prove that the count is responsible for the deaths of two of his friends. The sadistic Von Bruno toys with his guest, intending to subject Beckett to a horrible demise at the first opportunity. When Beckett meets the Count's reluctant bride Elga (Paula Corday), he vows to free her from the accursed castle. Karloff has a pivotal role as the Count's humanitarian physician, while his fellow horror-star Lon Chaney Jr. does his usual solid work as a mute but deadly manservant. Direction is by the versatile Nathan Juran, who also directed genre favorites FIRST MEN IN THE MOON, THE 7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD and 20 MILLION MILES TO EARTH for Ray Harryhausen, as well as many episodes of TV’s LOST IN SPACE, THE TIME TUNNEL and DANIEL BOONE. The effective music, believe it or not, was culled from stock scores by William Lava, Hans J. Salter, Paul Sawtell, Frank Skinner and Charles Previn. Nicely done.
