    The Black Cat (1934) [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    An all time favorite horror classic, looking forward to buying it on dvd this autumn, along with The Raven (1935). They'll both make a great Halloween double bill. [​IMG]

    In order of merit:


    1.The Black Cat (1934) ***1/2
    2.Bluebeard (1944) ***
    3.Detour (1945) ***
    4.The Naked Dawn (1955) **1/2 - I need to watch this again, though, as it's been some time!
    5.The Strange Woman (1946) **
    6.The Amazing Transparent Man (1960) *1/2


    His reputation as a cult film-maker is perhaps overstated but at least the top 3 titles possess a certain haunting quality which makes them fascinating viewing. Despite his erratic career, there are quite a few vintage Ulmer films I'd be interested in watching:

    The Cavern (1964)
    Daughter of Dr. Jekyll (1957)
    The Man From Planet X (1951)
    Pirates of Capri (1949)
    Ruthless (1948)
    Strange Illusion (1945)
    Isle of Forgotten Sins (1943)
    People on Sunday (1929)
