What a great surprise I had when I watched the movie in color. First of all the picture quality is vastly superior to that on my other DVD copy and I noticed things that I had never noticed before despite having seen this movie at least 100 times over the years. Examples: heavy marble and glass ash trays on desks at the newspaper office, the police office and a businessman's office; models of "modern" airplanes on Joe McGinty's desk, cookies on a plate in the patio tea scene (Mary Heath serving tea to the reporter and photographer)--on my old copy it wasn't clear what, if anything, was on the plate; cast-iron lawn furniture in the garden designed in a pretty fern frond pattern (the pattern was never discernable to me before), three floor-model art-deco cabinet radios (in Joe McGinty's office, the chemist's lab and the police station), a big wooden table model radio in the hotel room, a plastic art-deco small table model radio in Mary Heath's bedroom.Read more ›
Lugosi is the only thing going for this film, the rest of the cast simply can't act.
I mean when a giant rubber bat out acts the supporting cast!
but then again Lugosi was torturing er coaching him.
Its a shame the bat didn't bite more of the supporting cast.
Now a part of Legend Film's Cult & Horror Classics Collection, The Devil Bat's contribution to the cinematic canon is being preserved for future generations in fully digital DVD form. And, as with all classic Legend releases, the DVD contains two versions of the film: a newly colorized version and the original black and white version. You're free to select which you'd rather watch, but if you haven't yet seen everyone's favorite movie monster in full color, I highly recommend you do so. At least in my case, color connects the audience more closely to the events on-screen, and honestly makes it difficult to determine that the film is nearly seventy years old. Plus, for fans of Lugosi, it adds a certain human element to his performance that is otherwise absent in a bland grayscale.
So pitch your tent and "camp" out with me!

Just as a matter of principle I am against colorization and am shocked to see it still being used, especially for such an obscure film. Read morePublished on July 18, 2012 by Peter H. Brothers
