Bowery at Midnight (1942)

Not a typical Bela Legosi flick but it was interesting. Legosi plays Professor Frederick Brenner aka Karl Wagner. During the day he is a preofessor of psychology at the local college but by night he is a gangste. He runs a bowery at night where local criminals come together. There he recruits some of the underworld's finest to commit crimes for him. They do so gladly never knowing what awaits them once their job is over - death. Now one of the professor's students has found out about him the professor must get rid of him and quick.

This movie was not great and not bad - it was just alright. Legosi was not his usal self in this film which was the major disappointment. Also, there was an entire storyline that was never fully explained or resolved which was very annoying. Worth checking out if it is on TV but do not waste your money on it.
