Black Dragons (1942) Bela Lugosi

American industrialists, all fifth-columnists intent on sabotaging the war effort, are methodically murdered.

Black Dragons is a landmark film in the history of incoherent cinema. This film was put together in a hurry after the start of World War II. The movie is vague and confusing, still it held my interest. Lugosi is menacing as Monsieur Colomb, who easily kills and can vanish from moving taxis. This film has a confused script and choppy editing and yet it's intriguing. A young Clayton Moore (The Lone Ranger) plays an obnoxious investigator who does not trust Lugosi. Some may dismiss this movie as dated but I found it imaginative and interesting. ★★★
