Bela Lugosi's name never appears in the credits in the version of the movie that uses the "Boys from Brooklyn" title screen. Presumably the original title of "Bela Lugosi Meets a Brooklyn Gorilla" made a listing in the credits unnecessary, but since that was the only place his name appeared, the title change meant that his name disappeared completely from the credits, as there are no cast credits at the end of the movie either.

OK, so the stars are a poor (very poor) imitation of Martin & Lewis. Yes, the movie is a lot on the low budget and bad side. Yet, it's Bela Lugosi! From great movies like Dracula, Island of Lost Souls and The Black Cat to bombs like Plan 9 from Outer Space, Bride of the Monster and Mother Riley Meets the Vampire, Bela makes it worth your time in one way or another.
I like this film. It's silly and not very good, but it makes me laugh. Therefore, I'm entertained and that's the whole idea.
