Boo (1932) - Albert DeMond

Oh dear, some of the rubbish I watch does amaze me sometimes. Other times I feel like hanging my head in shame. In this instance I guess it falls somewhere in between. Boo is cobbled together using footage from Nosferatu, The Cat Creeps and Frankenstein. Over this DeMond has seen fit to add what he obviously thinks are witty remarks, which are narrated by one Morton Lowry (his only claim to fame as far as moving pictures go). It's like an early version of What's Up, Tiger Lily?, but without the laughs. Not big, not clever, not good. Even at 9 minutes long it's best avoided.
