Zombies on Broadway (1945)

*** (out of 4)

RKO comedy has Wally Brown and Alan Carney going to an island to look for a zombie for their gangster boss' new club. Once on the island the run into a crazy scientist (Bela Lugosi) who might just be able to help them. This film doesn't get too many good reviews but I'll give it one because for some reason the comedy team makes me laugh. They certainly aren't in the same league as Abbott and Costello but their dumbness works on me but I'm not really sure why. The supporting players do nice work and that includes Lugosi who actually gets to do some nice comedy here.
