A 1949 Re-Release Vintage Theatrical 8" x 10" [20 x 25 cm] Movie Still (Learn More)

Black Dragons, the 1942 William Nigh World War II (WWII) espionage spy plastic surgery melodrama (a really great story that began filming on January 22, 1942, just six weeks after Pearl Harbor, surely making it one of the very first anti-Japanese movies filmed in America after the attack; it has a wild plot!; Lugosi is a prominent plastic surgeon who is sent to Japan in the late 1920s, and he is hired to operate on six Japanese men and make them duplicates of six prominent Americans; he does so, and then he is immediately imprisoned; the Japanese send a man who looks a lot like Lugosi to America to murder the six Americans so that the altered Japanese can take their place, and he successfully does; afterwards, he too is imprisoned, so that he can't reveal what was done; years later, the imprisoned plastic surgeon meets the killer and kills him, and performs plastic surgery on himself to make him the duplicate of the man he killed, and he then gets out of prison and goes to America, where he, in revenge for being imprisoned, starts killing the altered Japanese one by one; the American officials don't know that, so they think there is a serial killer killing prominent Americans, and after five are killed, they lay a trap for him, and catch him as he is about to kill the sixth and final one!) starring Bela Lugosi, Joan Barclay, George Pembroke, Clayton Moore, and Robert Frazer. Note that Bela Lugosi's career had substantially cooled off by this point (surely aided by his drug problems), and this was a pretty low budget B-picture, but many people report that it is quite entertaining, and certainly, it had a really wild (if completely unbelievable) plot, and everyone agrees that Lugosi gives one of his best performances in years (actually two performances, because he plays a dual role!).
