Another fantastic week for classic Sven. With a 65 minute run time you can count on classic clips a song or two and Svensurround! Black Cat was Universals biggest hit in 1934 and was the first of eight movies for the duo of Karloff and Lugosi. This was also one of the fist movies to have a score playing continuously in the background. This was very unusual for the time. Soundtracks only ran during the opening and closing credits.
This movie is also part of horror host history as it was part of the original SHOCK THEATER package of 52 Universal titles released to television in 1957, followed a year later with SON OF SHOCK, which added 21 more features.
