Yes. I love those U-I dramas and westerns.
The story is more interesting than that. Chaney fancied himself a leading man in the Clark Gable vein--clearly he was already hitting the bottle pretty hard--and was pestering Universal to throw him a few dramatic bones. In order to keep him happy, they licensed the rights to the radio show, which allowed him to be romantic (sort of) without straying too far off the spooky reservation. And the reason he wears a mustache in all of them is because--Gable wore one.
I thought Chaney was pretty good in these films. Some better than others , but all of them are enjoyable .
Just thought I'd mention something here . Growing up in the late 1950's many of us were exposed to these films as part of the Shock Theater package that include all the famous Universal -International horror films. There were a number of films that would be a stretch to call horror films including these . But, we tuned in each week and enjoyed the films, and many of us became fans of Chaney , Ankers , Zucco, Atwill, Verdugo, etc. and these B movies . So, we now consider these films to be part of the horror genre . I'm glad Mill Creek is issuing these on Blu-ray , and I hope that between , Kino -Lorber , Shout Factory , and Mill Creek eventually every one of the Shock Theater films - 72 in all , I think - get released . It's possible - they're already more than half way there !
