Quotes

Mike Streger: I guess I better think of something, huh?
Jerry Miles: No! That's what caused all the trouble before. You had to think of a zombie? You couldn't say a two-headed boy or an African pinhead?
Mike Streger: Where could you get those?
Jerry Miles: Well, a pinhead would have been easy. I don't know where to start lookin' for a zombie.

Broadway?
20 October 2013 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Wally Brown & Alan Carney(would-be Abbott & Costello copies) are press agents forced by their nightclub-owning boss to go to the island of San Sebastian, where they are to find Professor Paul Renault(played by Bela Lugosi) who has a reputed technique for turning people into zombies, which is exactly what is wanted as a publicity stunt in the nightclub's opening night. The two men are bumblers, who nonetheless hassle the Professor, forcing him to go after them... Silly, clumsy, and entirely unfunny farce has aged quite badly, though Lugosi still tries; he would later work with the real Abbott & Costello when they met Frankenstein, and he once again played Dracula!
