Bela Lugosi Meets a Brooklyn Gorilla (1952, Bela Lugosi, Duke Mitchell)

Poor Bela, only four years from an early death and one year from being resurrected as Dracula in the Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein. Still that was a successful comedy compared with this idiotic movie. The heroes are two Martin and Lewis look-alikes, Duke (Mitchell) and Sammy (Petrillo) who head for the jungle. One of the friendly natives falls for Duke, which annoys a mad scientist Dr Zabar (Lugosi) who turns the straight guy into a gorilla while the zany one makes a lot of noise. Then he wakes up. It’s all a dream. Or, for the audience, a nightmare.
