While not a particularly good film, it will be of importance to horror completists and Karloff fans – and both of those groups will be quite pleased by Warner Archive’s new offering.
Lovingly rendered in black & white, with an image that clean enough for government work, and only the slightest occasional shimmering, which may be part of the original photography.
According to notes found on IMDb, the film was shot in eight days at WB, on sets used for the Errol Flynn film, Too Much, Too Soon. As Carl Guthrie had just completed the Flynn film, he was hired for F1970, as he know how to light the sets.
Look for The Maltese Falcon, as set dressing.
Another quality effort from Warner Archive.
