Did you know...

Bela Lugosi made the film for a salary of just over $800, which was less than any other actor on the project. Lugosi accepted the fee and the role because he was in the middle of bankruptcy.


The identity of the actor who played "Owl Man" is unknown.


Inspired the 1981 song of the same name, recorded by Blondie.


and..

Lines from this movie are featured on the "House of Pain" album by a rap group of the same name.


All this inspiration and I did not care for this movie all that much sorry. I understand it is significant in many ways but was not for me. This is a rerun so you will see the old coffin but a new mail bag. Have fun with this one and let me know what you think.
