Halloween Hijinks continue with this "Discipline and Desire" WolfieToon:
Speaking of spanking and mummies, here's some Wolfie Movie Tie-In Trivia!
The first (and best) mummy film was the one with Karloff in 1932--
and it was directed by Karl Freund!
Freund was a cinematographer of renown-- and you've seen his art even if you don't know his name!
Freund's movie work includes the famous silent movie "Metropolis"--
1931's "Dracula" with Bela Lugosi--
"The Good Earth," for which Freund won an Oscar for his photography--
"Key Largo" (Bogie and Bacall fans take note!)--
"The Thin Man Goes Home"-- (Aha!)--
And many, many more!
Then Desi Arnaz persuaded Karl to become the chief cinematographer for "I Love Lucy"--
during which he designed the lighting and perfected the three-camera technique that sitcoms are still using now!
The WolfieToons Blog-- it's fun AND educational!
By the way, if you're tired of the same ol' Halloween fare, I heartily recommend Karl Freund's movie "Mad Love!"
It's highly entertaining, creepy, and funny!
It was Peter Lorre's first film in America, and he's unforgettable as Dr. Gogol! Colin Clive-- Henry Frankenstein in the Karloff film-- plays concert pianist Orlac, whose crushed hands are replaced with those from a knife-throwing murderer! Feisty heroine Frances Drake is his wife, who stars in stage horror shows! And the American reporter with the snappy comic-relief patter is Ted Healey-- whose former stooges were Larry, Curly, and Moe! You oughta be able to dig it up somewhere!
