"The Phantom Creeps"

screenplay by George Plympton, Basil Dickey, Mildred Barish ; directed by Ford Beebe and Saul A. Goodkind
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
The Phantom Creeps is everything an old classic B sci-fi is supposed to be. It features Bela Lugosi (as Dr. Zorka), a mad megalomaniac genius with a utility belt and a sack of gadgets that would make Batman and James Bond blush, against a team of CIA-types, a reporter, and local law enforcement. Lugosi hams up a storm and really seems to enjoy himself in this immensely silly role. His somewhat untrustworthy and dull side-kick, played by Jack Smith is a great foil to his overbearing stage presence, and he makes a truly great sadist!
