32 Days of Halloween III, Day 29: The Vocal Stylings of Lorre, Lugosi and Karloff

Peter Lorre

So after re-watching the genius vocal stylings of Christopher Lee, which was our pick to kick off Day 29 of last year’s 32 Days of Halloween, I decided to poke around and see what other singing horror greats we hadn’t already featured.

I mean, we’ve had Karloff singingtwice, actually. Ted “Lurch” Cassidy sang and danced. So where do you go from there?

How about Peter Lorre joining in on a duet in German? This is from a 1933 film, Was Frauen träumen (What Women Dream) and you can find the translated lyrics of the duet on the video’s page. Update: That version with the translated lyrics has been taken down. But here it is. Maybe Dom can give us the gist.

And, joyful horror of joyful horrors, not only do we get more of Karloff singing–but in a duet with Bela? Magnificent! Where the hell is this from, anyway?

Two years ago we had a focus on Ray Milland as well as Lorre.
