Bela Lugosi and the Monogram 9 by Gary Don Rhodes - Soft Cover Book

Film historian Gary Don Rhodes presents his latest book, Bela Lugosi and the Monogram 9. Soft cover. 255 pages. Loaded with photos.

BETWEEN 1941 AND 1944, BELA LUGOSI starred in a series of low-budget films released by Monogram Pictures. To many viewers at the time and during the decades that followed, the "Monogram Nine" were overacted and underproduced, illogical, and incoherent. But, their increasing age has recast such condemnations into appropriate praise: in the 21st century, they seem so different, not only from modern cinema but also from Classical Hollywood, enough so as to make the aforementioned deficits into advantages.

The entries in the Monogram Nine are bizarre and strange, populated by crazy, larger-than-life characters who exist in wacky, alternative worlds. In nine films, the improbable chases the impossible. This book, in turn, chases them.
