(a film retrospective by Mark R. Leeper)

RKO's zombie series really had only one good film, I WALKED WITH A ZOMBIE. ZOMBIES ON BROADWAY shares two very noticeable actors with that film, Sir Lancelot and Darby Jones. This is a somewhat racist comedy, with the "comedy" team of Alan Carney and Wally Brown, probably inspired by Abbott and Costello, but there is nothing very funny in the "humor." These days it is a very rare film to find on television (TCM showed it eight times between 1998 and 2007, then once again in 2015, and not since.) This film is yet more evidence that Bela Lugosi would act in any film that would pay him. (This is known as LOONIES ON BROADWAY in the UK.) Rating: -1 (-4 to +4)
